A healthy way to enjoy whiting and/or tilapia, without spending all of your time in the kitchen. My family enjoys it, even the kids will be looking forward to the next time I make fish.

  • Place whiting fillets in a baking dish and add enough milk to cover the entire bottom of the dish. Season fillets with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt. Top each fillet with at least 3 pieces tomato. Add butter to each fillet. Squeeze 1 lemon half over each fillet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 30 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Tilapia can be used in place of the whiting.

Margarine can be used in place of butter.

I found and tried this recipe today. I made it exactly according to the directions. I served it with saffroned rice and mixed veggies and made a sauce by thickening the milk mixture. The flavor was delicious and the fish was juicy flaky and flavorful. And so easy! Thanks Read More

I used whiting for this (especially because it's the cheapest of the frozen fish at my store), but think it may taste better with tilapia or even cod. The whiting was a bit fishy tasting and the combo of fishy + milky didn't appeal to us. I followed the recipe, but may try making a thicker sauce next time by adding flour and butter to the milk before pouring it over the fish. The milk remained very runny and seemed wasted in the bottom of the pan. I would probably also use fresh minced garlic next time because we love the taste of garlic. I think this has potential but didn't work great for me this go around. Read More

This actually came out really good(minus the tomatoes) I was skeptical I must admit. I couldn't take a picture because it was gone as soon as it came out of the oven. Definite repeat dish. Read More

I'm kind of new to cooking fish. This was very good and tasty and did not smell at all "fishy". Read More

Great flavor and texture plus it looks great on the plate. Didn't require a stocked pantry to put together. I was out of onion powder so I added sliced onion with the tomatoes. Read More
