Baked Fish Parmesan

Last night I needed a fast and easy dinner to make, because the girls and Dan had places to go and things to do (translation: Trivia Night at a local restaurant with friends). So I adapted an idea from the box of fish fillets I get from my restaurant supply house, and this meal came to be!

BAKED FISH PARMESAN

1/2 cup milk
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 slice bread, ground into crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp dried minced onion
1-1/2 pounds fish fillets
1/4 cup melted butter

Thoroughly whisk together the milk, egg yolk and salt in a flat bowl. In a separate flat bowl, stir together the pepper, bread crumbs, parmesan and onion. Dip each piece of fish into the milk mixture and then the dry mix, rolling to coat well. Place in a greased baking dish, and pour the melted butter over the fish. Bake at 450F for 5 to 10 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the fish fillets (mine took 10). Pour the melted butter from the bottom of the pan over the fish after it's been served.
I served this with long grain and wild rice flavored with chicken broth, onion, carrot, celery and diced tomato, and a salad. The rice took 25 minutes, the longest of any item, and everyone was happy!

Restaurant Supply House? I want one of those!!!

The fish looks delicious. I can see why everyone enjoyed it.

BTW Marjie, for some reason, the new Thor (Thor's Waiting) post that's showing in my side-bar doesn't seem to be popping up. Perhaps part of a blogger glitch. Also, if you get a chance, stop by my blog, you can see what I bought. I think you'll get a kick out of it:) I'll try Thor later...

Yummy! These look delicious!!
The Old Guy and a friend went fishing on a charter boat a month or so back, and he came home with "his" portion of 5lbs of prepared whiting and flathead - so I'm in desperate need of fish recipes right now. ;)
