Low in carbohydrates but pleasing in taste, this recipe makes for a moist and tender main course. Parmesan cheese flavors a medley of zucchini, mushrooms and onions that tops the fish fillets.—Sondra Ostheimer, Boscobel, Wisconsin

"I was looking for an alternative to breaded, fried~in~butter walleye!! This certainly is NOT an option!! Obviously, the temp. was too high! I checked it at 15 minutes. The edges of the fish and the veggie were 'almost crispy', while the center of the fish was still underdone!! Not a pleasing presentation to serve dinner guests! I thought 'Taste of Home' actually made the recipes and tasted them before they printed and 'raved' about them!! I guess not!!"
