I came up with this as a way to bake bass and make it less fishy tasting. It works well with catfish and any other fillets. I don't know where I came up with the idea for the broccoli, but it works. The broccoli does not taste fishy, and I think it counteracts the fishy taste.
Cover the bottom of a Pyrex baking dish with broccoli tops. Frozen is fine, but cook them a little in a pan of water on the stove to soften them. Not much, don't want to overcook.
Chop up some onion, green peppers, celery, and garlic and saute in butter in a pan. You want just enough to cover the fish. Again don't cook this too much, it will cook while baking. Seasoning vegetable mixture from the store frozen foods section will work ok too if you are in a hurry.
Spice the fish fillets and lay on the broccoli. Lemon pepper, salt free cajun seasoning, pepper, whatever you like..
Pour the seasoning mixture over the fish fillets. Add a couple of pats of butter to the broccoli. Slice up some lemon thinly and place on the fish.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Garnish with some chopped shallots and squeeze some fresh lemon on the fish. Enjoy.
