           Do we need to flip the fish after 10 min during the first 20 min baking? ie before set to broil ?

        It is not necessary to flip.

           Hi, I have tried this baked fish. I substitute with boneless fish which is my husband's favourite. It turns out GREAT!!
           I am looking for chinese style of cooking Fishball noodle soup. I am not sure if you know one. If you do, please post the recipe. Thanks so much.
