Baked French Fried Onion Fish

Last night, as I was preparing dinner, I thought: If everyone likes french fried onion chicken, why not use the same technique for baked fried fish?  It is such a simple and delicious way to prepare a main dish.

I had bought some fresh haddock and was in the mood of experimenting with a new recipe.  I brushed the fish with a light coating of mayonnaise and then french fried onions.

I baked it in a 375 degree F oven to 25 minutes.

It was a winner!

Place onion-coated fillets onto parchment or foil-lined baking sheet.  Press extra onions on top.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until fish is fully cooked.

Enjoy!

NOTES

I did not crush the onions and they produced a more sparsely battered fish fillet.  If you like a thickly battered fish fillet, I would suggest crushing the onions in a ziploc bag first.
