Cheese Baked Fish

A couple of weeks ago, my lady boss gave us a lunch treat in a restaurant. The Western food that I ordered on that day was Cheese Baked Fish. That's where I learned to make this at home. It tastes almost the same, except my choice of Sutchi fish does not have the muddy smell like the Dory fish that served in that restaurant. This will be the credit to my home made version. :)

Cheese Baked Fish
Serves 2

2 medium fish fillet (I use Sutchi fish)
16 cherry tomatoes, half
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and grated
Half lemon, juiced
black pepper powder
cooking oil
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

1. Line the baking tray with aluminum foil. Oil the base with vegetable oil. Place the fillets onto it.

2. Sprinkle both sides of fillets with grated garlic, salt and pepper. Top the fish fillets with shredded Mozzarella cheese. Arrange halved cherry tomato on top of it.

3. Bake at 200C for 12 minutes or until fish is done.

4. Sprinkle the fish fillets with lemon juice and serve hot.

Cheese with anything is yum!!!

Looks so yum and colourful

Pam said...

This is a must try! It looks and sounds delicious with all that cheese. Guess it would work with about any whitefish.

My oven is still with the manufacturer pending "investigation". Hai....! Will try your recipe once I get it back. Looks very drool worthy. ;)

I like that you added the cherry tomatoes this way. Hmmmm....every bite of the fish must be bursting with juice :)

Jessica said...

Love this idea. I've always just broiled my fish with seasonings or perhaps fried it, but never tried with cheese before. Thanks for this recipe!


Irada said...

This one looks delicious and definitely worth trying.

wendyywy, oh yes, and just eat a little already full. :)

Priti, thanks.

Pam, any white fish is suitable for this dish, yummy!

Food For Tots, oh, what's wrong with your oven? All this while, I'm using small tabletop oven. I'm thinking of if it goes wrong one day, I want to upgrade to a bigger oven with grilling feature. :)

tigerfish, you are right, the fish is juicy, and the cherry tomato taste good after baking.

Jessica, this is my first trial with cheese, and it's pretty easy to cook fish in this way.

Irada, thanks for dropping by and feel free to try my recipe. :)

Fresh Local and Best, taste wise the fish is ok, not muddy or fishy smell at all.

xin, some ppl don't like the smell of Dory fish, but I'm ok with it. But with this Sutchi, it will be better.
