Recipe created by: Albert Bevia

These oven-baked crispy fish fillets are what delicious and healthy food is all about. We´re talking a light crispy texture on the outside, perfectly tender fish in the inside and a ton of great flavors. Speaking of flavors, our Sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika is the secret ingredient to taking this dish to the next level thanks to a century old recipe and hand-harvested peppers. But the best part? No frying and no oil. Everything done in the trusty oven with absolutely no fuss.
