Very nice! Such an easy recipe, and I was a bit skeptical about using Miracle Whip (since I'm a Hellman's Mayo gal), but I made this recipe exactly as written, and the sauce was AMAZING! Really creamy and delicious and a perfect compliment to the fish. I like my fish a little overcooked too, so I ended up baking it for 20 minutes like your note said. Even an ex-DH who happened to be visiting loved this fish recipe. And SO easy to prepare! Thanks, didyb, for yet another Keeper in my house.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb white fish fillet, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon dry onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning
  • 12 cup Miracle Whip light
  • 12 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400.
  2. Spray 9X9 pan with cooking spray and put fish in pan.
  3. Mix butter, onion, Montreal Seasoning, and Miracle Whip and spread on top of fish.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes per inch thickness of fish (until fish flakes easily with a fork).
  5. Top with cheese and bake til melted (5 minutes).
  6. (I may overcook my fish, but that's how my husband likes it- I usually cook it for 20 minutes, than an additional 5 or so with the cheese).
  7. Serve with rice to use up all the delicious sauce.
