Would you like to join Fish Friday Foodies?  We post and share new seafood/fish recipes on the third Friday of the month.  To join our group please email Wendy at wendyklik1517@gmail.com.Visit our Facebook page and Pinterest page for more wonderful fish and seafood recipe ideas. For December, Sue from Palatable Pastime invited us to make "Fish in a Dish"! "The chilly weather is definitely here so let's have some fun with our ovens and put the fish and seafood into a casserole dish and bake...bake...bake! Think noodle casseroles, lasagnas, enchiladas,etc., anything that goes into a dish and into the oven."

I was thinking fish casserole - and stumbled across this recipe and was intrigued! I really liked the combination of the french onions and cheesy topping over the tender, light fish, but did wish the rice had been more flavorful. I added 1/2 tsp salt to the recipe instructions below, but would probably play with the seasonings a little more (and probably salt and pepper the fish fillets as well, in addition to the paprika). It's a great base to play with! Mix and match your veggie add-ins as well! It makes a great all in one dish for sure, and was warm and cozy and easy for a work night meal.

Baked Fish and Rice adapted from Taste of Home

Ingredients
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup rice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups frozen peas, thawed and drained
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (2.8 ounces) french-fried onions, divided
1 pound flounder (or other white fish)
1/2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the broth, rice, Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder, bring to a boil. Transfer to a greased 2-quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Add the peas, Parmesan cheese and half of the onions. Top with fish fillets; sprinkle with paprika.
  2. Cover and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Uncover; sprinkle with cheddar cheese and remaining onions. Return to the oven for 5-6 minutes or until cheese is melted and any excess liquid has been absorbed into the rice.
