This Creamy Fish Fillet Casserole is an easy and scrumptious weeknight dinner. Plus, it’s ready in 30 minutes!!
If you’re a seafood person…welp this recipe is perfect for you!
Let me introduce you what my kids called “the pink fish”. My kids really like this dish, I think they like it because of the pink sauce. I usually make it as a quick weeknight meal because I know they’ll eat it without complains. Plus, it has enough flavor and kick to keep the adults happy as well!
This time I used the Basa fish fillets that I picked up at my local Asian supermarket. It was the first time I tried this fish but I was pleasantly surprised. This fish has a very mild fish flavor. It’s moist and slightly firm. I will definitely buy it again. But don’t worry, if you can’t find Basa fillets this recipe also works great with many types of white fish fillets, including tilapia or mahi mahi.
The star of this recipe is the sauce…Hands down the best sauce for fish EVER!!
The sauce is actually quite refreshing rather than rich and heavy. It’s very simple to make, with 4 everyday ingredients: Clamato®, evaporated milk, lime juice, and cornstarch.
We all know Clamato® as the indispensable ingredient in many beverages, including the traditional Michelada™. But it’s more than that. Because its versatility, and the fact that it’s made with a blend of spices, It can be use as an ingredient in many recipes. I love it in this recipe because there’s no acidic taste, just a very fresh and light tomato-ish flavor.
This is a great simple recipe to add to your repertoire!
