What a dish! Although I substituted a few things. Here were my changes; used Red Mill all purpose gluten free flour vs. all purpose flour then added 2 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning along with freshly ground pepper. I only had raw shrimp, so after cleaning those up I sautéed them in the butter with two minced garlic cloves and the mushrooms. In the meantime I seasoned the cod with salt, pepper and Old Bay. However I did not cook the fish as specified in original recipe because the cod slices I had from Trader Joe's were too thin to cook in the microwave and oven. So I had the seasoned fish in the baking dish poured the sauce with the shrimp and mushrooms on top, added the mozzarella and baked for 18 minutes. What a fabulous dish. My whole family loved it. Thank you.
One of the best seafood dishes we have ever eaten. Friends requested the recipe.
I thought this recipe was very good and my dh liked it as well. I ended up using a pound of scallops instead of 1/2 lb. My only question is, why cook the scallops and cod prior to baking? It seems to me this is an unnecessary step and I think it toughens the scallops. Next time, I will bake only to see how it comes out. But it was still a great recipe, full of flavor.
