Baked Bluefish in Mayonnaise Recipe

By Favorite Seafood Recipes of the Eastern Shore by Joanne van Roden

Mayonnaise coats the bluefish to keep it wonderfully moist. The fish is lightly seasoned with salt, pepper, lemon, onion, and parsley, then quickly baked under high heat.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 4 pounds (or larger) bluefish, dressed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • Paprika


Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

Wash and dry fish. Salt and pepper inside and out. Coat with mayonnaise inside and out. Place fish on heavy aluminum foil in baking pan. Arrange lemon slices on top, sprinkle the onion and parsley around. Dust with paprika.

Turn oven down to 400F. Bake fish 10 minutes per pound.

Tip: Do not ever worry about coating fish with lots of mayonnaise -- you will not taste it. It keeps your fillets moist and delicious.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
