  • Use very fresh ingredients - buy the best quality fillets possible.
  • Check and remove any pin bones prior to baking. The easiest way to do this is to pan the fillets dry and gently touch the fillets with your finger. Use a tweezer to remove any pin bones.
  • Seal the entire baking dish tightly with a very large piece of aluminum foil that covers the baking dish completely so that all the steam is used to cook the fish.
  • Cooking time may vary based on the size and thickness of the fillets. If you open the foil and find that more time is needed, simply seal the foil back the best you can and put a baking sheet on top of the baking dish to hold it down. Cook for additional minutes as needed.
  • When serving, be sure to use a large spatula to pick up the fish from the baking dish. The fish will be very delicate so the best method to transfer it to a dish is to use a large spatula and lift the filet by scraping it across the bottom of the fish.
  • Serve immediately - this fish is best when served as soon as it comes out of the oven.
