Baked Fish with Boursin Herb Cheese

Here is one of my favorite fish recipes......since it is the Lenten season it seems appropriate to post now (Thanks for the suggestion Leigh Ann!!) I've made this recipe several times using Tilapia fish fillets and it always turns out soooo good!! I've even thought of trying this recipe with chicken breasts. It really would be versatile with Cod, Tilapia, Salmon, Halibut or Chicken Breasts.....just make sure to bake it long enough to thoroughly cook the meat. I love to serve this along side wild rice. Also you can use Boursin, Allouette Cheese or any kind of cream cheese spread. Enjoy!!!

Baked Fish with Boursin Herb Cheese

"Use Boursin or Allouette Cheese and canned tomatoes seasoned with onion, peppers and garlic to make this dish with fresh cod. It's an outstanding fish recipe for a quick and easy-to-prepare dinner. Add a tossed salad, a green vegetable side dish, and your dinner is complete. Olive oil may be substituted for the butter."
15 Min
25 Min
40 Min

2 tablespoons butter, melted (or olive oil)
2 pounds fresh cod fillets (I used 4 pieces of Tilapia)
1 (4 ounce) package Boursin cheese with herbs, room temperature (I only used 1/2 the pkg.)
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic, onion, and peppers, drained
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Pour 1 tablespoon melted butter into baking dish to coat bottom. Arrange the cod fillets in the dish. Pat fillets dry using a paper towel. Spread the Boursin cheese evenly over the fillets. Pour the tomatoes over the tops. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
