Baked Cod with Mushrooms Recipe

“I created this when I was on a low carb diet,” writes Kim Thomas of Monahans, Texas. “It tastes delicious and is perfect as a light dish.” We think you'll agree! If you're sensitive to spicy foods, use a bit less jalapeno.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 5 small fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 3 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 2 cod fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, jalapeno and onion in 2 teaspoons butter until tender. Place fillets in an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper, steak seasoning and bread crumbs. Top with mushroom mixture. Divide remaining butter and place on each fillet.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-8 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"I like to try a new recipe at least once a week. I was looking for easy ones made with ingredients I had already. The only ingredient I had to buy for this was the cod fish. I used sweet peppers instead of jalapeno and it was GREAT! My husband and I loved this recipe."
