Fish Fillet Oreganata

My family is not a big fan of fish, if we do have fish it’s most likely pan fried with lots of sauce or steamed, ( Chinese style, oh so good!) but I still like to cook fish and collect recipes of it and this one‘s caught my interest. I’ve never heard of fish oreganata before and when I found out how unbelievably easy and quick it is to make, I just knew that I’m gonna be making it.

The fish turned out flaky and delicious, thanks mostly to the crumb topping; it is just perfect for the fish fillet which doesn’t really have that much flavor to start with (the reason also that my husband doesn’t find baked fish appetizing) to be honest. I paired it with couscous with kangkong ( water spinach) and some salad greens.

If you’re looking for simple, easy and healthy fish recipe, try this one! 🙂


put fish fillet in a foil-covered and non-stick sprayed baking sheet; cover fish with crumb topping


..and bake for about 10 minutes…so quick, huh!


Slice and serve!   It looks so beautiful, like something you order from a resto 🙂

adapted from One Perfect Bite and Aggie’s Kitchen


8-10 ounces fish fillet ( I usually use sole or cream dory fillet)
1/2 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
2 teaspoons ground oregano
1 tablespoon dried parsley (or 2 tablespoons fresh parsley)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice ( or use calamansi juice)
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

non-stick cooking spray

Here’s How:
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Cover a baking pan with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray.
Wash fillet and pat dry excess water and put on the foil-covered baking sheet.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix well and press crumb mixture into the fish fillet making sure it’s evenly covered.  Lightly spray top with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake the fish fillet for about 10 minutes or until it is opaque. Cool a bit and slice into 3-4 pieces. Serve with some salad greens or couscous.


Thanks and have a nice day!! 🙂 God Bless!!
