Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease one 8x12 inch baking dish.

  3. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until fish is opaque and flakes with a fork. Serve topped with sliced avocado and sour cream.

I too am not a measurer. I spread salsa across the fish and sprinkled them heavily with cheese. I also used a spicy corn chip which added to the flavor. My fish-hating daughter loved it. One note: If you use frozen fish, make sure to press out the excess water otherwise you'll have a swimming pool of water in the dish.

OMG, I don't see how this could get any easier! I used talapia and baked for 30 min. No measuring, just dumped the ingredients on, and it tasted EXCELLENT!

This was excellent. My boyfriend DEVOURED this. I used catfish instead as I think cod fish is very "fishy". My only concern with this meal was that it was kind of watery in the dish while cooking. My salsa was really chunky so I think that it was the fact that I did not pat the filets dry enough before putting them in the oven. Also, I get antsy about fish being cooked completely & by putting all of the ingredients on top of it immediately, it was hard for me to tell. Next time, I will cook the fish for 10 minutes just to be sure & then add the salsa, cheese & tortilla chips. Great recipe! Thanks for posting it.
