Baked Fish


Cleanse and prepare the fish, leaving the head and tail on the body, but remove the eyes and fins. Now prepare a filling as follows:


  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons of shortening
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 egg


Mix and then fill into the fish. Fasten the opening with a string or with toothpicks. Place in a baking dish and rub with plenty of shortening. Dust with flour and place in a hot oven to bake. Baste every fifteen minutes with boiling water. Allow eighteen minutes to the pound and twenty minutes for the fish to heat thoroughly and start baking.
