Fish Fillets Italiano

Pin It
I made this for the first time the other night and it was a hit! We eat fish or shrimp at least once a week and all of us like it. I get most of my fish from Schwan's because it's just so good from them. I buy our salmon and cod from them and sometimes tilapia. I got tilapia fillets from Sam's a month or so ago and was really happy with that too. I like to buy fish that has been flash frozen because it never has that "fishy" smell to it. I also never buy fish that is pre-seasoned because I don't like all the sodium and junk that they put on it. This recipe would work well with any mild white fish like cod, tilapia, or halibut. Also, the amount of time you cook the fish depends on how thick it is. I served this over plain white rice. I didn't think my kids would like this one but they ALL ate it and said that cod was their new favorite fish. Yay!
