Fish Baked in Creamy Sauce

I kept putting off trying this recipe until tonight and WOW was it good. I used Talipa and it was excellent. This is going in my recipe box and I'm sending it to my daughter in Wisconsin where the fishing is great!

Fish Baked in Creamy Milk Sauce with Onions & Herb

This is one of the ways I prepare most of my fish. I do not like the strong flavor of fish & the milk takes that fishy taste away. I vary the seasonings with/or without onions. Got some of my family preparing the same way-never eating fish previously.

Baked Fish

I prepared this dish and um, um, um. This will be on my list of to make frequently. It was easy and my pantry was readily stocked with most of the ingredients, except the fish of course and it was in the freezer, lol. I used grouper, which a friend had fished for in Florida and was generous enough to share, and it was excellent. Also, I would like to add that we had an old Italian restaurant in my city for many years (has since retired from business), and we would dine there on special occasions just for the "fish in a bag", which this dish is so similar in taste, that all you need do to get nostagic is do this in a parchment paper type bag. Thanks for sharing this recipe as it is a wonderful experience to serve and enjoy.
