I haven't tried this, but saw it on Recipefinder and thought it's a must-try Time is a guesstimate.

Yum! We used fresh dolphin which was cooked to perfection in 10 minutes. For a thinner fish like snapper I'd probably reduce the oven temperature. This makes lots of sauce - maybe enough for 5 pounds of fish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 cups cream
  • 12 cup tasty cheese (cheddar, I assume?)
  • 12 small onion, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon nam pla (fish sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 lb fish fillet (Australian mackeral, barramundi, tuna, salmon, or coral trout)


  1. Make sauce by combining all ingredients (except fish fillets) in saucepan over medium heat until cheese is melted.
  2. Place fish fillets into baking dish (one that can go directly onto the table works well). Spoon the sauce onto the fillets.
  3. Bake at 425 - 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes (for thick fillets), or under the griller (for thin fillets) until cooked and top is browned. Fish should flake easily with a fork; on the other hand, it shouldn't look dried out either. Alternatively, you can also reduce the sauce in a frypan on a medium to hot heat on top of the stove. Turn heat down to medium and then cook the fillets in the sauce.
