  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • black pepper
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce
5 mins
20 mins
25 mins
Preheat oven to 350°. In a buttered 9x13 inch baking dish, lay fillets in a single layer. Do not stack fillets.

In a bowl, combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions and seasonings. Mix well with fork.

Bake fish in oven for 10-15 minutes or until fish just starts to flake. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use.

Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook.

**NOTE: This fish can also be made in a broiler. Broil 2-3 minutes on each side. Then top with cheese mixture and broil another 2-3 minutes.

"I made this last night and I asked my 8-year old if it was good. She said "No, it is GREAT!". I think that says it all. I did broil it instead of baking it. Don't make the mistake of lining the pan with parchment paper like me...it will burn in the broiler! Had to make a quick change to foil."
