Little Susie Home Maker's Baked Hake or Cod

Baked Hake Fish Recipe
Recently, I came across some beautiful Hake fish filets. They are considered a white fish and said to be similar to Cod with a mild flavor. Being sure to include fish in our diet is a great way to increase our cardiovascular health and good brain function. So please, count me in!

When it comes to cooking fish. I always love to oven-fry mine. Here is my recipe that I use to oven-fry these wonderful fish fillets. Please feel free to substitute your favorite fish in this recipe!

Susie Home Maker's Baked Hake (Cod)

4 Hake or cod fillets
Juice of 1 lemon, (or lemon juice in a little yellow plastic squeeze container)
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Preheat oven to 400* F
Place butter, olive oil and 2 cloves of crushed garlic in a small saucepan over simmer. 
Slowly melt butter while stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, rinse and pat dry the fish fillets with paper towels. 
After the fillets are dried, cover them with lemon juice on both sides. 
Pour the melted butter mixture into a pie plate or shallow dish. 
Next, saturate the fish well with the butter mixture.
In another shallow dish that is filled with the bread crumbs, 
place the fish fillet and turn to coat evenly.
Then you can place the fillets onto a shallow baking pan
 that is coated with about 1-2 Tbsp oil.
Repeat with remaining fish fillets.
 In a small bowl add mayonnaise, pepper, salt 
and remaining 2 cloves crushed garlic and mix together.
Spoon mixture onto the top of the fish fillets on pan.
You can leave this mayo mixture off, 
but this adds a lot of flavor to the mild fish, so I slather it on!
Place into oven and bake for 20 minutes. 
Fillets should be flaky and golden.

Serve on a favorite platter. 
This goes well with a wild rice and roasted veggies, and a simple green salad!

My family loves this dish.
I hope that you will try it. 
Do you like to include fish in your weekly dinner menu?
