Mushroom Fish Bake with a Zucchini Gratin


We always stock up on frozen fish fillets when me make our monthly BJ’s runs and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it.   Baked fish can be a bit on the bland side but the addition of mushrooms, onions and Italian dressing really liven it up!

Ingredients for Mushroom Fish:

  • 4 tilapia fillets, frozen (feel free to substitute any flaky white fish here)
  • 1 pack of baby bellas, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 3 tbs zesty Italian dressing

 Ingredients for Zucchini Gratin:

  • 1 pack baby zucchini, halved lengthwise (you could also use large zucchini, sliced thin)
  • 1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes in herb oil
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat, Italian four cheese blend
  • handful of fresh basil, chopped

Directions for Mushroom Fish:

To a casserole dish, add you mushrooms and onions.  They will act as a bed for the fillets.  Season your fillets with salt and pepper and place on top of your mushrooms and onions.   Drizzle with Italian dressing and bake for about 25 mins or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Directions for Zucchini Gratin:

Place zucchini in a small casserole.  Mix ricotta with sun dried tomatoes, salt and pepper and spoon evenly on top of zucchini.  Top with shredded cheese and bake 25 mins or until cheese is slightly browned on top.  To serve, top with fresh basil.


  • Look for sun dried tomatoes in herb oil in the produce section of your grocery store.
