Welcome to Our Guest Cheryl Hollon!

Cheryl Hollon is waving HI!

Fall is a much-anticipated time here along the West Coast of Florida. The temperatures have dropped to long-pants season and you might even catch us wearing a jacket in the evening. Another reason to celebrate is the return of reasonably priced fresh fish. This is the easiest recipe for fish EVER!


Easy Baked Fresh Fish

Ingredients:

1 pound fresh white fish (like Grouper, Cod or Haddock)
4 tablespoons mayonnaise (here in the South, we use DUKE’S mayonnaise)
1/2 cup Italian Panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (any kind)
Fresh ground pepper (optional)
Tartar Sauce (optional)



Equipment:

Small baking pan
Aluminum Foil
Parchment Paper
Spatula


Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Wrap baking pan in aluminum foil. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the baking pan.
Spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise on each fish filet making sure to cover the entire top of the filet as well as the sides. The bottom stays flat on the parchment paper. Shake a thin coat of the panko to cover the mayonnaise, then lightly sprinkle with the Italian seasoning.



Bake in the oven for 18-24 minutes. Do not turn fillets, leave them as they are. Check at 18 minutes. The fish is done when the meat is white and flaky. Serve over rice or my favorite, steamed mixed vegetables.



My husband absolutely loves this dish and in less than two minutes, here’s what that plate looks like. Then the gets another serving of fish!



The Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries featuring new owner Savannah Webb are set in St. Petersburg, Florida. The series starts with Pane and Suffering, then continues with Shards of Murder and Cracked to Death. The fourth book, Etched in Tears, releases on November 28, 2017, and is available for pre-order at the following links:

Indiebound:  https://www.indiebound.org/book/9781496711755

Isn’t this a gorgeous cover!

When a famous glass artist is murdered at his own exhibit, deadly secrets are put on display, and it’s up to glass shop owner Savannah Webb to see through a killer’s cover.

Celebrated glass artist Dennis Lansing is returning to St. Petersburg, Florida, for an exhibit at the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum. His unique style of embedding document images in his art is at the vanguard of contemporary glasswork. But as Savannah’s first boyfriend and a former apprentice to her father, Dennis’s return home has her reflecting on the past—a trip down memory lane that takes a dark turn when Dennis is found murdered at the museum with an old reference letter from her father in his pocket. A search through her father’s records sheds new light on Dennis’s history, but it seems his present life wasn’t so transparent either. Now, with a gallery of suspects to consider, it’s up to Savannah to figure out who fits the mold of a murderer.

  8. Your series would be new to me, but I must say that I am intrigued by glass art and would enjoy gleaning a bit about the process while reading a cozy. Must say, what a fascinating career you have had! I enjoy the above recipe very much and have been using similar for quite some time. It also works well with chicken thighs (I use bone in and skin on, but it should work with boneless skinless, too) I use more breadcrumbs to cover and bake on a rack in a pan for about 45 minutes at 375F. If you prefer a deviled version, can add a spoon of mustard or tabasco to the mayo. This is the type of recipe that rewards greatly for the short prep that is entailed.

  21. Yum! We aren’t lucky enough to get much fresh fish in Tucson. Trader Joe’s does carry very good quality frozen cod. I’ll try something like this without the mayo...maybe olive oil would hold the topping? I’ve read the second book in the series. Fun. I’m happy to read more and pass it along to friends when I’m finished. Lldawnjm(at)gmail(dot)com....thanks for the giveaway.

    1. When I'm watching my calories, I use mustard instead of mayo. The olive oil won't create the seal that essentially steams the fish. When I use frozen fish, I add a bit of baking time. Everything else stays the same. Good Luck!
