This delicious recipe is so easy to make and it is packed with plenty of flavor. Any mild whitefish will work in this recipe so you might just want to choose whatever happens to be on sale. You can use fresh or thawed fish. As well as the fish, this recipe features onion, a creamy sauce, and a lovely parmesan breadcrumb topping.
The fish mixture is cooked on the stove, and then like many other baked fish recipes it is finished off in the oven. You will be able to see when the fish is cooked because it begins to flake. This is when you need to mix in the other ingredients and add the topping. You can pop it under the broiler rather than in the oven if that is easier. The aim is simply to brown the crunchy topping because the fish mixture is already hot and cooked.
Baked fish recipes are a great idea for family meals. Not only are you able to use any whitefish on sale to make them, but you can include minced veggies for added nutrition. Your family will love this crunchy-topped baked fish with its lovely creamy sauce. Serve it with asparagus, broccoli, or your favorite vegetables on the side, as well as some potatoes or fries.
