I fix flounder recipes frequently because my husband is on a low-calorie diet, and my whole family enjoys it. This fish is baked on a bed of mushrooms and green onions and topped with bread crumbs and reduced-fat cheese. —Brenda Taylor, Benton, Kentucky

- 2/3 cup sliced green onions

- 2 tablespoons dry white wine or chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
- 1/4 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
