I've lived in Rhode Island for many years and love the fresh seafood dishes served here. This recipe from my mother-in-law is a favorite of mine. —Norma DesRoches, Warwick, Rhode Island


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 small onion, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk, divided
  • 1-1/2 pounds cod fillets or freshwater fish (trout, catfish or pike)
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain; cool slightly.
  2. Slice 1/8 in. thick; place in a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with flour. Top with onion; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour half the milk over potatoes. Place fish on top; pour remaining milk over fish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.
