Baked is definitely my favorite way of preparing fish and this recipe, while including lovely flavors of marjoram, mustard, lemon and paprika, still allows the delicious fresh taste of the fish to come through beautifully. It is really quick and easy to prepare too which makes it a good dinner for the family on a busy weekday.

This recipe is simple and easy to follow. I wonder what could be a good low-fat substitute for mayonnaise. The only thing that comes to mind is tomato sauce, although that would definitely change the flavor. Also, the fat in mayonnaise serves to keep the fish moist whereas tomato sauce is water based so it might cause the fish to be drier. Any suggestions?
