Yesterday I made a baked fish for dinner for the first time ever! I had been wanting to learn how bake a fish for a long time. Mostly just because I thought it would be a good (healthy) meal to learn how to make. Since my dad is fish crazy he is also very good at making fish. Instead of looking for a recipe, I just asked him to show me how to make fish his style. There are no measurements in his style of cooking just random amounts of ingredients.
The fish I baked was a steelhead. I didn’t choose this type of fish for any particular reason other then that it was a large filet style cut which was what I wanted to make.
Here is how I made the fish his style.
First I cut the fish into 6 pieces Then I seasoned it with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Then I squirted on some soy sauce, added a scant amount of brown sugar and let the fish sit for a few hours (defrosting more, and also letting the seasonings absorb).
When it was time to bake to fish I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F, and baked the fish for a full hour at this temperature. I took the fish out at exactly one hour, and it was perfectly done! It was absolutely lovely. It was nice and moist, tender, and cooked thoroughly. It was the best fish I have ever eaten (even better then some restaurants I have had fish at).
I also made baked French fries style potatoes with seasoning and herbs, with the fish, and honey garlic carrots.
It was a delicious dinner enjoyed by all. There were almost no leftovers.
