Baked Fish and Potatoes is a simple, low calorie and sodium recipe that serves 4 to 5 people. It uses frozen fish fillets that allows you to make this recipe any time in just about 90 minutes without having to first thaw the fish. The 60 minute cooking time thaws and cooks the fish fillets without drying them out and produces fork tender potatoes.
