Most of us often think that a toaster oven is only good for toasting breads, or heating cakes and cookies. This appliance can roast, broil, defrost and bake different types of meats, poultry and fish. When well done, baked fish can certainly be a yummy, and mouth-watering meal. Baking fish using a toaster oven takes less time compared to cooking it in a regular oven, however the end result tastes as good as cooking it in a large oven.
Here’s how to bake fish in a toaster oven.
If you’re wondering what types of fish are great for baking in an oven toaster, the good thing is that any type of fish fillet will do, from salmon to trout and more. The first step in baking fish is preheating the oven to 350 F. Next, rinse the fish with cold water, and remove any loose scales, then dry the fish using towels. Now, grease a baking pan or shallow dish with olive oil or butter, and place the fish on the pan skin-side up. Sprinkle the skin with sugar, salt and pepper, and rub the mixture to cover all sides of the fish.
Bake Fish For 20 Minutes
After sprinkling all the ingredients into the fish fillet, bake it for twenty minutes. And depending on the size of your toaster oven, check the fillets after ten to fifteen minutes, to see if the skin is brown already, and bubbles have begun forming on it, and the meat’s texture has lightened too. Remove the fillet from the toaster oven and allow cooling.
You can also add milk, white wine, chopped olives and garlic powder to season and flavor the fish. For more exciting and tasty baked fish ideas and recipes, visit Cooking With Your Toaster Oven today.
