This baked parmesan crusted fish is a favorite in my house. You’ll start with a filet of any type of white fish, I prefer Redfish, but Mahi, Tilapia, or catfish would work great too. Pat them dry then sprinkle them with a mix of seasonings and breadcrumbs and, of course, parmesan cheese. Top with butter and bake to a crisp until a nice crust is formed. This recipe is so good and worth trying!

I love a good baked fish recipe. I’m from Louisiana so there are so many places locally to get good quality fish. I personally love redfish and that’s what I make this recipe with. However, you can always choose another fish.

I got inspiration for this recipe at a local restaurant we eat at frequently. I’ve made this recipe several times and now Allen will ask for it. I’ll come home and he will have some redfish thawed out for me to bake. This recipe is really simple, and there’s no particular amount for each topping. I simply sprinkle them on top of the fish. They come out baked so perfect and crispy.

Equipment You’ll Need

You’ll need a large baking pan to start with. You’ll line it with some parchment paper so the fish won’t stick. I really like these parchment paper sheets. They are easy to use and don’t fold up in the corners. I also really like these metal flat spatulas when I cook baked redfish or other baked fish recipes. They can get under the crust and pick up the filet it one perfect piece.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Fish:

 I used redfish, but you can use your fish of preference. Mahi, Tilapia, catfish or really any type of whitefish would work great.

Seasonings:

For seasonings, I used a mix of Old Bay, Cajun seasonings, salt, pepper, and garlic and onion powders. You’ll see in my recipe that there’s no particular amount of any of them. Just give them a healthy amount over each fish.

Breadcrumbs:

I used a combination of panko and Italian breadcrumbs. This will create the crust over the fish. Again, no particular amount. Just make sure the fish is covered.

Shredded Parmesan Cheese:

You’ll add some shredded parmesan cheese. Not the powdery kind. You’ll need real cheese.

Green Onions:

I also like to bake green onions over the top of the fish. I think like it adds a little fresher savory flavor.

Butter:

You’ll need 3 slices of butter per filet of fish.

How to Make Baked Parmesan Crusted Fish

Step One:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange filets of fish on the baking dish. Pat both sides of the fish dry with a paper towel.

Step two:

Sprinkle the top of each filet with the Cajun seasoning, Old Bay, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders. Then, sprinkle parmesan cheese and both breadcrumb types on the fish. There is no particular amount of each, just sprinkle a good amount until fish is covered.

Step three:

Chop and place green onions on top. Place three slices of butter on top of each filet. Bake at 375 for around 20 minutes. Top of the fish will be golden brown and crispy. Serve and enjoy!
