    teaspoon salt

    teaspoon pepper (can use either white or black)

    tablespoons grated or shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2
    tablespoons dry breadcrumbs

  • Saute mushrooms and onions about 3 minutes, until mushrooms are golden, sprinkling with thyme when about halfway through.
  • Spoon mushroom and onion mix over fish and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle about 1 1/2 T parmesan (or to taste) over the mushroom and onion mixture.
  • Mix remaining cheese into sour cream.
  • Spread sour cream over mushroom/onion mixture, using a spatula.
  • Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  • Bake uncovered for about 25- 30 minutes, or until fish flakes with fork.
