Oven Baked Fish Fillets

Fish Baked In FoilServes 2

Fish wrapped in foil is ideal for baking in the oven – it steams to tender, flaky perfection in it’s own juices, and you can add a little butter and other ingredients for flavour. A few herbs are nice!


4 x 200g fish fillets

30g butter

2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice

Black pepper


How to

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C/160 C fan forced.
  2. Place each fillet on 20cm squares of foil. Pleat ends of foil to partially enclose fish.
  3. Divide butter between fish, pour juice over fish and grind a little black pepper over  fish.
  4. Pleat foil firmly over fish to enclose completely. Place onto oven tray, bake for about 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Unwrap partially to serve.
