Guest Blogger: Baked Fish with Mushrooms

It is time for Monica to officially make her appearance on my blog. I have talked about Monica a gazillion times on this blog so I am not sure she needs an introduction but I will give one anyway. Monica is my best friend from Germany with whom I spent the last 7 years. Both sets of our children (our older girls and our younger boy & girl) are only 3 months apart and are probably as good of friends as we are. Oh, and leave it to Monica to send me a fish recipe considering she has been trying to get me to eat fish forever! :)


I really like making this fish because it's super easy and tastes great. It lets me get some fish in my kids diet with out having a super fishy taste. Plus, I love green onions and mushrooms!

Baked Fish with Mushrooms

1 pound fresh or frozen fish fillets, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick (I used tilapia)
2 TBS butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 tsp snipped fresh tarragon or thyme, or 1/4 tsp dried tarragon or thyme, crushed

Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut into 4 serving-size pieces, if necessary. Arrange fish in a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with salt. In small saucepan melt butter; add mushrooms, green onions and tarragon or thyme. Cook over medium heat until mushrooms and green onions are tender. Spoon mushroom mixture over fish. Bake, covered at 450 degrees for 12-18 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. (I only baked it for about 10 minutes b/c my fillets were very thin.)

Thanks so much Christine for such an easy and tasty sounding option. We eat fish a lot and try to limit the amount of beef. Just trying to be a little healthier. haha (and I bake too) Doesn't quite make sense right? I give alot of the baked stuff away. Anyway, I'm looking forward to trying this. Thanks
