Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees; prepare a baking sheet by spraying with non-stick cooking spray, rinse and dry fillets. Place on prepared baking sheet and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bake fish in oven until it flakes easily with fork, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • While the fish bakes, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat; add diced peppers and zucchini; saute until crisp tender, season with salt and pepper, divide cooked vegetables among 4 plates and top with cooked fish fillet.
  • For the sauce; reduce heat to medium and add the remaining oil to pan. Gradually whisk in half-and-half and then cheese; stir until the cheese is melted and sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Stir in chives, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle with cheese sauce over plated fish; garnish with additional chives if desired.

  1. Oh what can I say....DELICIOUS!!! I fixed this as written for company and everyone loved this and it was so easy. I know that you can make the same simple sauce with other light laughing cow cheeses for different meats/vegies and they would be good. Served this with recipe#320456#320456, recipeZucchini Stuffed with Herbs#469526 (even with the zucchini in the dish I needed to make this for PAC) and we all ate well and were happy campers. Next time I think I will add some onion to the vegie mixture for us but this is going into my Favorites of 2013. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
