This Baked Fish with Lemon Cream Sauce is a firm favorite in my home. It is such a versatile dish to make – you can use any white fish fillet that you like. I tend to use fish like snapper, John Dory or whiting when I make this. It depends on what my fish shop has in stock.

To make this lemony baked fish couldn’t be easier. I start by placing the fish in the bottom of a baking dish. I prepare the sauce by mixing butter, cream, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a microwave safe jug and I microwave it in two 30 second bursts, stirring between each burst. Then I scatter shallots over the fish and pour the sauce on top. Bake in the oven for ten minutes until the fish is cooked and there you have it!
