Crispy Baked Fish

Fish is the main course for the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors. This is an easy and nutritional dish. It uses only a few ingredients and you can have a healthy meal.


Fish is a rich source of omega 3. Canada’s food guide encourages us to eat fish at least three times a week. Marian served the Crispy Baked Fish with some Orange Glazed Asparagus which I had blogged before. Marian also prepared an orange honey glazed for the fish on the spot since we had extra oranges from the asparagus recipe.


  • 4 pieces white fish fillet like tilapia fillet
  • zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups crushed corn flakes
  • oil to grease the pan
  • salt and pepper to taste

Orange Honey Glaze

  • juice from 1 large orange
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • a splash of dry white wine
