Angies Baked Blue Fish
Angie would make this in the summer when our generous neighbors would give us fresh caught blue fish.
The only problem is that I had to clean it.
What a mess…
Blue fish aren’t very pretty and the meat is a funny cyanotic color but when it cooks it turns white and delicious.
1 1/2 pounds of cleaned blue fish
2 cups milk
2 sliced onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
One teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Two thin sliced lemons
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar plus two more tablespoons for after it is baked
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Use a foil pan with aluminum foil overlapping so you could bundle the fish.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Place the fish in a container of milk for at least a half hour.
Take out and rinse the fish and pat dry.
Spray the foil with about one tablespoon of oil.
Place the fish, skin side down on the foil.
Season with salt, garlic, oregano and pepper.
Put the lemon slices on the fish covering every inch.
Top with all the remaining ingredients except the extra vinegar.
Wrap the fish into a bundle and bake for about 20 minutes.
Let it sit for about 10 minutes then open up the foil and add the remaining vinegar.
This is a different taste than fried fish but healthy and delicious.
Serve with baked potato slices, a whipped cauliflower and a lemon green salad.
