Tasty Tuesday

Baked Fish with Shrimp

3 TBSP of butter (I used 4, per recommendations)
2 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 c milk
2 pounds red snapper fillets (I used tilapia, any white fish will do)
1/2 pound cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (I used nearly a pound)
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 325

2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat.  Whisk in flour and salt to make a paste.  Gradually whisk in milk.  Stirring constantly, cook until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.  ***I also added 1/2tsp lemon juice and sprinkled a little garlic & onion salt in the paste, per recommendations***

3. Select a pan large enough to accommodate all the fillets in one layer.  Coat with cooking spray.  Arrange fish in pan, and cover with shrimp.  Pour white sauce over shrimp.  Sprinkle with grated cheese.  ***I also lightly sprinkled garlic & onion salt on the fillets, per recommendations***

4. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes.

The Review:
Absolutely wonderful, my husband and 7 year old LOVED it!  I figure I'm not gonna even include my 2 year old in these reviews anymore, seriously, if it isn't peanut butter and jelly he pretty much isn't eating it!  Anyway, food was fantastic, the sauce was amazing!  Beware, this one is hard to walk away from with just one serving!  Recipe says it's 5 servings, we probably got more like 7 out of it.  How is it as a leftover?  Honestly I think it's even better a couple of days later!  Fantastic, definitely a keeper!

This looks like a good one! Jaden is just like Riley in the sense that if it isn't processed or cheese coated, she won't touch it!

The husband loves shrimp. May pass this on. So excited you're doing this! If I ever get organized enough to link up, I surely will!
