  • 500 g fresh or frozen boneless fish fillets , such as sole or catfish, about 3
  • 1/4 cup zesty Italian salad dressing , or any herb vinaigrette
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup store-bought, seasoned Italian-style bread crumbs , with cheese


  • Preheat oven to 450F (230C). If fish is frozen, do not thaw. Line a baking sheet with foil. Pour dressing into a shallow bowl or pie plate. Pour about 1/3 cup (75 mL) bread crumbs into a shallow plate. Add a fillet to dressing and gently turn to coat both sides. Then place in bread crumbs and turn several times until evenly coated. Place on baking sheet. Repeat until all fillets are coated. Depending on thickness of fillets, you may need more dressing and crumbs. Bake, uncovered, in centre of 450F (230C) oven until a knife inserted into thickest part of fish comes out warm, about 15 minutes for fresh fillets and 20 to 25 minutes for frozen fillets.
