Mayonnaise Bake Fish Recipe

Simple but Delicious

This recipe is an alternative for Fish en Papillote that is part of my Valentines Day meals to enjoy as a couple. It is a bit more straightforward but just as tasty a fish course. As with all of the Valentine’s ideas, you do what you feel comfortable doing. Maybe go all out for the cheese course and the dessert and use my short cut ideas for the rest.

If you’re feeling very confident, go for each of the more involved presentations. No matter how you decide to mix and match the courses with your comfort level, your Valentine will be thrilled by your efforts, and after all, that is the whole point.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Total Time: 21 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Mayonnaise Baked Fish Recipe


2 - 4 6 oz fish fillets (I suggest halibut or Chilean sea bass)

1 tablespoon olive oil or melted butter

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon dried dill

¼ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons panko (Japanese bread crumbs)

How To Prepare At Home

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Lightly brush the fish with the olive oil or melted butter.

Mix together the rest of the ingredients, except the panko, to make a paste. Spread half on each fillet. Press half of the panko on evenly on top of each fillet.

Bake for about 10 minutes, just until fish is opaque. Turn on the broiler and finish for 2 minutes, until panko is golden brown and mayonnaise has puffed a little.

Baking fish is a relatively straightforward procedure. You can certainly forego the mayonnaise topping and just salt and pepper each fillet. Squeeze a little lemon over and bake at 400 degrees F, until opaque and just beginning to flake.
