Fishing Around

My darling hubs is a fisherman among many other things wonderful.  

He keeps our deep freeze stocked with Blue Gill and Crappie...mostly all from our lake.  

After a while, fried fish gets a tad bit tiresome.  So, I have been playing around with different recipes.  

A year ago, he brought back some Walleye he caught while in Canada on a pleasure fishing trip.  I prepared it by rolling it in fresh parmesan cheese and baking it on a bed of crushed crackers.  Divine!  Hmmm, wonder how that would be with the freezer stash.

The first go round of this experiment was great, but I thought it could be even better.  Thursday night, greatness was achieved.  Unfortunately, in the excitement of gastronomic success, I forgot to take pictures.  OOOPS.  

So, here is the 411 on how to make super yummy (even kid approved) baked fish:

Parmesan Blue Gill (or Crappie...I can't really tell once filleted)

8 to 10 fillets
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup Panko crumbs
2 tbsp parsley
1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
a few grinds of fresh pepper
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp basil
1/2 tsp paprika

Preheat oven to 375.  Mix crumbs, cheese, and seasonings.  Dip fillet in butter and roll in crumb mixture.  Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining fillets. Sprinkle any remaining crumbs on the fillets. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes.  Crank the heat up to 400 and bake an additional 5 minutes or so just to give a final crisping/browning up.  

I served with wild rice and lima beans.  

Hope you enjoy!
