Easy Fish Recipe

These two easy recipes for fish are ideal for those days when you just do not have the time to cook. Even though they have to bake in the oven for some time, the preparation is quick and easy and while they are baking in the oven you are free for some other task. These are from my own personal top cookbooks recipes. I hope you enjoy them. Serve them with boiled potatoes and a green salad.

I have to be honest with you; I am not very good with cooking fish. I tend to overcook the fish and then it turns out very dry and tasteless. This is the reason why I love fish recipes that are baked in some kind of a sauce as they do not dry out that easy.
Another very easy way of cooking white fish is to simply mix a little melted butter with a packet of tomato soup and a little boiling water. Pour this over your fish portions and simply cook it in the microwave oven until cooked. To see if the fish is cooked simply part a small piece in the middle and if the fish is not transparent any more it is cooked. I have it even easier, my microwave oven has a "fish" program so I simply put it on "fish" and the microwave oven does the rest.
With these three easy fish recipes in your arsenal you should not be at a lost for a quick and easy supper again. I hope your family will enjoy these recipes from my personal top cookbook as much as mine.
