Lemon Dill Fish


2 slices bread, toasted until crisp

1 Tbsp flour

4 Ritz, Keebler Club, or Saltine crackers

1/4 tsp paprika

1 1/2 tsp fresh dill

3 Tbsp Delizia Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 tsp each onion powder and Oh, Olive! Garlic Seasoning

1 lemon, halved

1/4 tsp crushed peppercorns or black pepper

paprika for sprinkling (optional)

1 lb white fish, such as flounder, haddock or cod fillets (about 1/2 - inch thick)


In a blender or food processor, process first 6 ingredients to make crumbs.  Line a shallow baking sheet with foil.  Place fish on foil, brush with melted butter and sprinkle generously with the seasoned crumb mixture.  Slice the lemon in halves; save half to make slices or wedges for serving.  Squeeze the other half of the lemon over the fish.  Crush the peppercorns with the side of a heavy knife and sprinkle over fish.  Pour the lemon oil over all.

Bake in preheated 350°F oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15-20 minutes depending upon thickness of fillets.  Garnish with lemon wedges or slices (and a sprig of parsley or dill, if desired).  Sprinkle top lightly with paprika for extra color, if desired.

Makes 4-6 servings
