Baked whiting fillets make a healthy and quick meal. This whitefish can be served with sautéed vegetables, rice, potatoes and other side dishes. Whiting is a relative of the cod, so it has a delicate flavor. When baking whiting fillets, you can season them with any of your favorite spices including paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. You can also stuff the whiting fillets before baking.

- Oil or cooking spray

Grease your baking dish. You can use oil or cooking spray.
Season the whiting fillets with salt and black pepper to taste. Add a dash of paprika, garlic powder and any other spices you like. If you want to stuff the whiting fillets, divide the prepared stuffing and spoon it into the sliced fillets. Secure the fillets closed with toothpicks.
