Salsa Fish Recipe

"My family loves outdoor activities, especially fishing," informs Diane Grajewski of North Branch, Michigan. "I give their catch of the day unexpected zip with salsa. It dresses up these golden crumb-coated fillets and keeps them moist and tender."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 pounds fish fillets (walleye, bass or perch)
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 cups salsa
  • 8 ounces shredded or sliced part-skim mozzarella or provolone cheese


  • 1. Coat fish fillets in bread crumbs. In a skillet, brown fillets in oil. Arrange in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with salsa and cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 7-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork and cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.

"Really liked this. A spicy salsa gives it kick, and lots of cheese gives it even more flavor. Great for people who normally are not fish fans."
