Baked Mustard and Lemon Fish Fillets

This is a perfect dish for the days you want to dine light.
It is delicate yet big on flavor and very easy to make.

Best made with fillets,this dish can be made with whole fish too..but that decision comes with a whole lot of fish bones :)

Well,lets get to the recipe

I made this with a kg of Basa Fillets.


Fish Fillet 1kg
Mustard paste or good old kasundi from the friendly Bengali mart- 2 tbsp
Lemon juice-from one lemon
 Garlic -2 cloves grated.
Pepper-1 tsp or more
2 tsp olive oil / any cooking oil
Salt -to taste
Chopped Coriander
Oil to coat the baking tray.


1.Dab excess water off the fillets.

2.Make a marinade by mixing all the ingredients except the coriander leaves.

3.Rub the marinade over the fillets and keep aside for 5 to 10 mins.

4.In that time,preheat the oven to 200 deg with the pan you intend to bake the fish in.[coat the pan with oil before that]

5.Take the pan off the oven and place the marinated fish fillets in the pan.

5.Sprinkle half the chopped coriander over the fish.

6.Put the pan back in the oven and bake open for 12 to 18 mins.

7.Each oven is different so please do a fork flake test after 12 mins to be sure about the fish being cooked ,the way you want.

8.Take off the oven and plate the fillets.Sprinkle the rest of the fresh coriander over it.

9.The yummy liquid that is left off by the fillets makes a yummy sauce to go.
