A great way to prepare any white fish fillets you may have on hand. A side of Mexican-style rice is a wonderful enhancement to the meal.

Liked the flavor but the cooking time didn't work... even did an additional 10 min at 350 and it still wasn't cooked all the way through. Read More

I used mini sweet peppers instead of green peppers then added minced garlic and sliced zucchini to the vegetable mix. I didn't have the creole seasonings so I used lemon pepper. It was very good. We liked that the vegetables were crunchy we served it with cilantro lime rice. Read More

I made this last night. It was very tasty. I did make a few changes. I used banana peppers instead of Jalapenos only because that was what I had on hand. When I make it again I will make a point to get Jalapenos. I mixed the fresh veggies with olive oil lime juice and kosher salt fresh pepper then I put a splash of Louisiana Hot Sauce in the mixture. Topped the fillets with Cajun seasonings and cheddar blend of shredded cheese. It turned out really well my husband and 12 year old son loved it! Will definitely make again! Thanks Cheri! Read More

I made this and we loved it! I left out the jalapenos because my husband doesn't like recipes too spicy used about half the cheese for caloric purposes. I served it with Mexican rice. Delish! Read More

I have no doubt this would be 5 stars if I had all the recommended ingredients.I didn’t have cilantro, jalapenos or creole seasoning so I added a little red pepper and used New Orleans Cajun seasoning. It was delicious! Next time, I will NOT substitute! Read More

This was a great recipe! I did not use cheese, because cheese and fish do not go together in my mind. But followed the recipe beyond that and served over cilantro/lime rice. Family favorite!! Read More
