Easy Baked Fish

Sit down to dinner in under 30 minutes with
 this easy way to make fish in the oven.
I used catfish, but scrod or other mild fish would also work.
 Melt the butter in a shallow plate in the oven.
 Coat both sides of the fish in the butter. 
Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
 Top with the crushed Ritz crackers and a little melted butter.
 Bake for 20 minutes. Longer for thicker fillets.
A nice buttery crunchy topping.

Easy Baked Fish
1 lb fish fillets, about 4
4 T butter, 1/2 stick
1-2 T lemon juice
salt & pepper
1/2 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed

Put 3 T butter in a shallow baking dish and put it in
 the oven as it's preheating to 400. 
Rinse the fish and pat dry with a paper towel.
Remove the dish with the melted butter from the 
oven and lay the fish on and turn to coat both 
sides with butter. Squeeze 1/2 lemon, about 
1-2 T juice over the fish. Sprinkle generously with 
salt & pepper.Top the fish with the crushed Ritz 
crackers and drizzle the top with a the remaining
 melted butter. Bake at 400 for about 20-30 
minutes, until fish is opaque and 
the crumbs are golden.

tip: oven fries or small new potatoes can
bake along with the fish.

Enjoy!
