Baked Cod with Mushrooms

 Baked Cod with Mushrooms
“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.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 5 small fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 3 teaspoons butter, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs

  • In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, jalapeno and onion in 2
  • teaspoons butter until tender. Place fillets in an ungreased 8-in.
