The Monger’s Way

Wife’s Way

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees or the preheat the grill.
  • Lay whitefish fillet skin side down on a sheet of aluminum foil.
  • Mix salt and pepper in mayonnaise, spread thinly over entire whitefish fillet. Add half of the tomato slices over whitefish and mayonnaise.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes. The fish will be very moist, so when in doubt take a little nibble to see if done to your liking.
  • Construct your salad. I like to layer lettuce, more tomatoes, whitefish and bacon onto the plate.
