Baked Fish Tips
What's the best fish to bake?
For this fish recipe, your best bet is to use a flaky white fish, such as tilapia, halibut, cod, bass, grouper, haddock, catfish or snapper. White fish doesn’t mean that the fish is white in color; rather, it is a mild-flavored fish that cooks quickly and seasons very well. Learn more about the different types of fish.
How can you tell when a fish is finished cooking?
To test the doneness of fish, carefully pierce the thickest portion with a fork and twist slightly to see if it flakes without resistance. If it does not, cook it longer. Just make sure you are cooking fish properly.
Do you flip fish when baking?
Because fish is delicate and cooks quickly, flipping the fish isn’t always necessary.
