Crispy Baked Fish – the easy way to cook fish without the fishy smell!

Crispy Baked Fish

Anyone been fishing? There’s nothing like a fresh catch of fish! However, frying fish really smells up the house. Here’s a better way to fix fish (say that 10 times real fast) without the fishy smell. The fillets  still have a crunchy outside like frying, but this is much easier to do and there’s no smell! The Crispy Baked Fish recipe method is one you’ll use again and again.



 Fish Fillets

Regular Ritz  crackers (other crackers don’t taste the same in this recipe)


Eggs or Milk



Crush Ritz crackers really fine

Dip fish fillets in either milk or beaten eggs.

Roll and pat fillets in crushed Ritz cracker crumbs.

Place on a non-stick cookie sheet or coat sheet lightly with a cooking spray.

Crispy Baked Fish

Drizzle fillets generously with melted butter

Bake at 400 degrees for approx 15 minutes until lightly browned and fish flakes. (time depends on thickness of fillets)

Sprinkle with a few parsley flakes for color. Serve with lemon.

I learned this method from some friends in Florida and I’ve used it ever since.

  2. oh man who would have thought to smash up ritz to use as breading!?!?! love the idea, can’t wait to try this! Probably healthier than frying too.

    • Yes, I believe it is healthier, but there’s the butter! I like it better than frying!
