1-1/2 lbs white fish fillets, thawed if frozen
1/2 tsp homemade taco seasoning
1 cup pico de gallo (a must)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 to 3/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
guacamole, garnish black olives, garnish sour cream, garnish jalapenos, garnish lime wedges
PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x12 baking dish.
Rinse the fillets well and pat dry with paper towels. Lay fillets side by side in the prepared baking dish. Squeeze lime juice over the fillets and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 10 minutes and bring out of the oven. Cover fillets with pico de gallo (or salsa if you wish). Sprinkle with freshly grated cheddar cheese and top with crushed tortilla chips. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked and flakes easily with a fork.
At this point, you would plate the fillets and garnish with guacamole, black olives, sour cream, jalapenos and lime wedges. Serve with Spanish or Mexican Rice.
