  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spread butter into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange fish fillets in a single layer over the bottom of the pan, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake for about 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Meanwhile, whip egg whites in a clean dry bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold in the parsley, mustard and tarragon. Spread the egg white mixture over the fish in a layer about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top.
  3. Return to the oven, and bake for about 6 more minutes, or until meringue is golden, and fish flakes with a fork.

I made this with the expectation that the whipped egg whites and herbs would combine to create a unique taste. I cooked the recipe according to directions, only adding a sprinkle of dill. The en...

I'm not a very good cook, and I think I didn't whip the egg yolks until they peaked properly, but I still thought this was really good.

I just didn't like the textures, neither did my husband.
