Fish Recipe of the Week
Baked Fish Mexicana
This week we had a chance to cook both fresh Wahoo and fresh Dorado for dinner. We really liked this recipe for the Dorado so I thought we should share it with you. Any firm white meat fish should work fine, and what is really nice is that the recipe is very easy to prep and cook.
1 ½ pound firm white meat fillets (Dorado, Mako, Halibut, Snapper, Wahoo, etc.) or steaks.
1 cup canned salsa
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (we used some chipotle flavored goat cheese, it gave a really nice tang to the meal and the chipotle gave it a nice Mexican flavor as well)
½ cup crushed corn chips
Cut the fillets or steaks ¾ inches thick and place in the bottom of a glass baking dish that has a very light coating of oil (we use avocado oil)
Open the can of salsa and pour over the fish, a little extra is ok.
Spread the cheese of the top (we crumbled the goat cheese)
Scatter the corn chips on the top.
Place in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Put on the plate, serve with thinly sliced avocado and some sour cream on the side.
A small green salad, a glass of white wine (wait, this is a Mexican meal so a Pacifico is better!)
