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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb fish fillet (I always use haddock)
  • 14 cup milk
  • 12 onion, thinly sliced (I slice into rings and break them apart and in half if they are too big)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 34 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper


  1. Place fish in a greased pan with dabs of butter on top.
  2. Season with salt& pepper to taste.
  3. (this is where I sprinkle on lemon juice or lemon pepper if using) Cover with sliced onion.
  4. Pour on milk.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese and a little parsley if desired.
  7. Return to oven until cheese melts.

As the title says EASY and it is tasty. I used Cape Capensis fish filets and instead of cheddar a little parmesan sprinkled on before baking. That bit of milk sure makes a difference We enjoyed our dinner very much
