Easy Cheese Baked Fish

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rhonda J

I quite often bake my fish this way. Easy & simple, nothing fancy, but we like the result. I actually do not even measure the ingredients anymore and just throw it together, but these are the original measurements. Sometimes I add a little lemon juice or lemon pepper seasoning and top it all off with a sprinkling of parsley for a little colour.

Awesome recipe! I subbed onion slices with lemon slices, and it was superb! I also tried it wit tilapia. Awesome!
