I was planning on making pasta for supper, honestly. But then I remembered the lonely mashed potato leftovers in the fridge, and leftovers or not I LOVE mashed potatoes. I can have them with an omelet, sour cream, cheese, chicken, veggies and just basically with anything. Whenever I want food that makes me feel comfort and warmth I turn to the mashed potatoes. But enough about the mashed potatoes, I needed something to go with it. We don’t tend to eat a lot of meat or chicken at home but I still needed something to go with the potatoes and then it hit me – fish! I only had sole fillets and although I love sole, the dishes I made in the past tasted good but looked kind of sad. I remembered watching a video on YouTube my husband sent me, showing Gwyneth Paltrow making one of her favorite recipes from her new cookbook “It’s All Good”. The book is all about egg, gluten, dairy (and so many more ingredients) free food, which is so much healthier, and in the video she was showing how to make baked fish nuggets. Remembering that video inspired me to make something similar but different myself. I always like to avoid frying when possible and tend to bake rather than fry, it’s so much more healthy this way and since I mostly serve to my kids I would naturally prefer it if they eat healthy. So what I did is take my sole fillets out of the freezer and without even thawing them, made supper. The fillets came out crunchy, full of flavor and were super easy to make, just the way I like it. So thanks Gwyneth for the inspiration.
- 9 Sole Fillets (Frozen or thawed)
- 3 tbsp Mayonnaise
- ½ tsp Dry Oregano
- ½ tsp Garlic Powder
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 1 Cup Bread Crumbs
- Preheat oven to 400F (200C)
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
- In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, oregano, salt and garlic powder together. Whisk until smooth and even.
- Place the bead crumbs in a plate for coating
- Dip both sides of the fillets in the mayonnaise batter until both sides fully covered with batter. You can also use a spoon to gently apply some batter on each side.
- Dip the batter covered fillet in the bread crumbs until fully coated on both sides
- Place on the prepared baking sheet and into the preheated oven for 15 minutes (depending on your oven this may take longer, you need the fillets to turn golden)
- After 15 minutes broil for another 4 minutes until golden brown
