Greek-style Baked Fish - Psari Plaki

By March 18, 2011

Fish Plaki

The term plaki (plah-KEE) is used to describe a dish that is traditionally cooked with olive oil, tomato, and vegetables in the oven. You can have beans "plaki" style or in this case fish plaki.

This recipe for Greek-Style Baked Fish or Psari Plaki took ho-hum fish fillets and transformed them into a fish entrée worth writing about. My not-so-fish-loving kids really devoured it.

The type of fish that you use is up to you - try halibut, cod, tilapia, sea bass or any firm white fish. I had some mahi-mahi fillets in the freezer that I wanted to use and they were delicious.

The fish that I used put off some extra liquid when it cooked. I reduced the remaining juices from the pan to concentrate the flavors and added a bit of cornstarch to thicken the liquid for a "sauce." Even without the added sauce the fish was still very moist and flavorful.
