Asparagus Fish Bake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mama smurf

Found in the magazine Cooking for Two Spring 2006. Another simple and delicious recipe. I am writing as posted but I generally mince some garlic and a few red pepper flakes (for some zing) and add to the onion when sauting in butter. I also season the fish with a little Old Bay Seasoning and use panko crumbs for the saltines.

This was pretty tasty. I used bread crumbs instead of crackers. I layered a lot more asparagus underneath. I did have to cook the fish longer so the asparagus got a bit too soft, next time I won't pre-cook it.
