Easy cooking of fish fillets in about 15-20 minutes.
  1. Thaw fish (though if not too thick you can use frozen fish directly).
  2. Preheat oven to 425F (I use convection mode so you may need a bit hotter).
  3. Take a pyrex dish, put some vegetable oil on the bottom (so they don't stick), then put fish fillets on top (say about 500g worth).
  4. Season the fish with a bit of salt and pepper.
  5. Put in oven.
  6. After about 10 minutes take them out and baste one side with melted butter (easily done by zapping 10-15g of butter in the microwave for 10-20 seconds and then using a silicone brush).
  7. Then return the fish to the oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes until they are the desired done-ness.

This works well with cheese sauce, noodles and some steamed vegetables.
