A flavored mayonnaise topping is a quick way to add gusto to simple whitefish fillets.
Puffed Baked Whitefish
- Cooking and Prep: 30 m
- Serves: 6
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place fish in a greased 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) baking dish (glass is preferred) and sprinkle with pepper.
Beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form.
Fold in mayonnaise, dill, and onion.
Spoon over fish and spread evenly.
Bake uncovered for 10–20 minutes or until topping is puffed and fish flakes easily with a fork.
Add garnishes, if desired.
If you prefer a thinner coating for your fish, use just 1 egg white, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 tsp dried dill, and one tablespoon diced onion.
