Italiano Style Baked Fish Recipe


I love making baked fish dishes. Using fresh vegetables enhances any kind of white fish and  tranforms it into a flavorful wine Italian salsa topping with crispy baked buttery bread crumbs!




4 pieces of White fish (Cod, Haddock, Tilapia, Sea Bass or other mild filets)
Italian flavored bread crumbs
2 cups cleaned medium sized shrimps
1/4 cup white wine (Chablis preferred)
1 thinly sliced zucchini
1/2 cup sliced halves grape tomatoes
2 teaspoons minced garlic in olive oil
Optional: cayenne pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
cooking oil spray

She loves this fish, don't dare touch her while she's eating you may lose a finger.  This is Regina our new baby kitten she is was born on March 7th.  We named her Regina after the evil Queen in Once Upon A Time" the television series.  She plays the part well, bites, scratches and torments her older brother and sister, !Fonzo and Trina. We love her to pieces though and we may end up in pieces if we don't abide by her rules (smile)..  she's such a handful of mischief!  When I made this fish she sat there until I gave her a taste and ate the whole piece!


In a large sprayed baking pan, place filet's on the bottom of the baking dish. Top with zucchini slices.  Put the cleaned shrimps on the top of the zucchini.  Top with sliced tomatoes, minced garlic, salt pepper to taste and cayenne pepper if using.
 Sprinkle with a generous amount of Italian flavored bread crumbs and grating cheese to taste we load it on!
Carefully pour wine around the bottom of the pan not touch the toppings. Drizzle with a little olive oil and melted with butter.
Bake on 350 degrees,  hot oven until the tops are browned around 35 to 45 minutes.
Note : Occasionally we sprinkle this with mozzarella cheese and broil the top until browned and bubbly!

Fish is so tasty when enveloped in a tasty sauce.
