Baked Fish Recipe - Greek Style

Greek Style Baked Fish

First, gather all of your ingredients. For this recipe, we recommend using a white fish fillet. Some common options are Pollock or Tilapia. However, this same recipe is delicious on Salmon or Trout, too.

Remove the seeds from your lemon slices. If you leave the seeds on it might lens slight bitterness to the sauce.

The olives mellow down during the cooking process and taste delicious. The sweet juices from the tomatoes balance out the tartness from the lemon.
