Crispy Fish Parmesan (just like Chicken Parmesan) from The Food Charlatan

Crispy Fish Parmesan (just like Chicken Parmesan)

This recipe is just like classic Chicken Parmesan, but uses crispy fish fillets instead of chicken! We also skip the battering and frying steps by using frozen fish, so this comes together fast.

  • 1 (19-oz) package Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets Gorton's Brand
  • 12 ounces linguine pasta plus water and salt to boil, and olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese finely shredded
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 4-6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese *thinly sliced
  • fresh basil chopped (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Line up all 10 fish fillets on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray (line it with foil or parchment paper first for super easy cleanup.)
  • Bake the fish filets for 12 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil and add a half tablespoon of salt or so. (It should taste like seawater). When it boils, add the linguine. Cook according to package instructions, usually about 8-9 minutes, until al dente. Drain and drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
  • Take the fish out of the oven and flip each fillet. Sprinkle each fillet with about a teaspoon of shredded parmesan.
  • Return to the oven for 6 minutes.
  • Take it out of the oven. Spoon about a tablespoon of marinara sauce on each fillet, then top with a thin slice of mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven for another 4-6 minutes (last time I promise!), until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Heat the marinara sauce on the stove or in the microwave.
  • Divide the linguine between 4 plates. Top with warmed marinara sauce and 2-3 fillets.
  • Top each plate with chopped basil and serve.


*Regular shredded mozzarella would work great too!
