Lo-Cal Baked Fish

Recipe Information
Almost like deep-fried fish

American Heart Association Cookbook 4th edition


  • 1 lb (.5 kg). fish fillets ( I used Cod, you might want to use a different type)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml). oil (I use canola)
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) cornflake crumbs
  • Wash and dry fillets and cut into serving pieces.
  • Season with pepper and dip in oil,
  • Coat with cornflake crumbs.
  • Arrange in a single layer in a lightly oiled shallow baking dish.
  • Bake at 500 degrees (250 C.) for 10 minutes without turning or basting.
We have used orange roughy, cod, ling cod, and other firm white fish. I have also used a very small amount of sea salt to season. Also you can use olive oil (recommended in cookbook, as well as a spray (i.e. PAM) if you want even less oil) This is a very basic receipe that can be expounded upon with different spices.
