In Northern New York we like our sharp Cheddar cheese. Other cheeses may work well too. This is great served with a pasta side dish or steamed veggies and a dinner roll.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

I followed the recipe to the letter. I used sharp cheddar but any cheese would work. I left in in the oven for 1/2 hour and the cook on the fish was perfect! It was moist but not slimy and flaked easily. My husband and I loved it and I will definitely make it again. Read More

very good. swai is not my favorite fish but it's inexpensive. this recipe made it a tasty fish. my only changes were: i used diced tomatoes on top and drizzled a small amount of the juice over the fish. I also oiled the pan first. Read More

I've made this previously and loved it but this time instead of fire roasted tomatoes on top I used chunky salsa and it was absolutely delicious. Read More

I wasn't sure these flavors would go together but they DID. It was really delicious. Just smelling it cooking was driving me wild. I didn't have any fire-roasted tomatoes so I subbed in Classico Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic pasta sauce. It was very tasty. If I do it again I will add less though. I think 15 oz of pasta sauce sat very differently on the fish than 15 oz of tomatoes would have done since I had to cook it for almost 50 minutes. Read More

When I made this I used the basic recipe but didn't measure anything. Did change the cheddar cheese to fiesta blend cheese and the roasted tomatoes to salsa - only because that is what I had. Entire family loved it - even daughter who doesn't like fish. Will definitely make again. Read More
