Let’s be honest, nobody likes to cook a fancy complicated recipe, at home, we are lazy when it comes to cooking. This recipe is an effortless 15-minute recipe where fish is baked with a creamy lemon sauce. It’s the sort of recipe you can make no matter how hectic your household is, or on a lazy Sunday night because it’s this easy!

This recipe is for white Fish fillet – any fairly flat white fish fillet is fine here, Tilapia, Snapper, Barramundi, Dory, Hoki, Hake, Bream. The thicker the fish, the longer it will take to bake.

As always, fresh fish is better but frozen fish will do too. Make sure you defrost the fish completely, pat dry with paper towels to remove as much excess water as possible. Chances are, your sauce will be a little thin because frozen fish drops more liquid than fresh.
