Cod Smothered in Mushrooms

Recipe by AcadiaTwo

I had some left over sauteed mushrooms and a 1/2 pound boneless cod filet, so I decided to try something different. The fish was moist and the topping was flavorful.

We found this a little bland for our tastes. i had sauteed a chopped onion along with the mushrooms, but next time would probably add a little paprika or garlic to the fish. It was very moist and easy to prepare. I actually used an oven-safe skillet, so saved washing one pan.
