Baked Fish Fillets, Love Aunt Betsy Anne

1 pound fish fillets
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
Dash salt and pepper
1/2 cup milk
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon snipped parsley
Oven 350 degrees

Cut fillets into serving pieces. Place in greased shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice, paprika, salt and pepper. In saucepan melt butter; blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Pour sauce over fillets. Sprinkle with crumbs. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Trim with parsley. Makes 3 or 4 servings.

I’ve used lots of different kinds of fillets with this recipe and all seem great – although our favourite is orange roughy which unfortunately is hard to find here in Jasper. You can also add more spices if you want and it’s quite easy to double the recipe. Double if you want lots of sauce.
