Holle’s Easy Baked Bluefish recipe

What you’ll need:

  • Bluefish fillets, with skin removed
  • Lime juice
  • Chopped parsley
  • Black pepper
  • Lowry’s garlic salt
  • Mayonnaise

Directions: As soon as you catch a bluefish that you’re going to eat, make a cut above the tail and wait a couple of minutes before filleting. This will allow the fish to bleed. Next, we cut off the head, even if we’re going to fillet the blue.

Fillet the fish quickly, removing the dark line of flesh. Get the fish on ice as soon as possible.

Rinse fillets and pat dry. Place in a lightly greased pan.

Drizzle with plenty of lime juice and sprinkle with parsley, black pepper, and garlic salt.

Spread a layer of mayonnaise on top of each fillet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
