Baked Four Cheese Fish

*This is not a sponsored post in the least bit. These opinions are mine, and maybe my husband's, but will not result in any sort of compensation. *

I have been on a huge fish kick lately. If we go out, I order some type of fish or shrimp and then devour it like I've never tasted seafood before. Like, the whole thing is just gone. My husband is not the biggest fan if seafood, but the more he tries, the more he likes. So I decided to take advantage of his new adventures in eating and thougt about how I could work a fish meal into our weekly menu. 

Enter Kraft Fresh Takes.

 We have used these before for chicken and pork and they turn out great. It's VERY similar to shake'n'bake, but it has fresh cheese along with bread crumbs and seasoning. Since I had no idea how to make fish, I decided to pick this up with some pollock, baked potatoes and asparagus to make a weeknight meal. They make it super easy - pull apart the middle seam to mix the cheese and bread crumbs, then put the meat of your choosing into the mix to coat. I actually pinch the top of the bag close and shake because it tends to coat it better. Also, only put one piece in at a time to get the best results. Once the fish was coated, I placed them on a baking sheet and added a little more of the mixture to the tops for good measure. Bake it at 375 for  11-13 minutes. Times will vary depending on meat and thickness, but that is described on the back of the packaging. 

This was the end result: 

It was fabulous. We each had three small pieces of the pollock and a baked potato, but I also wanted asparagus for some crunch. After dinner my husband told me he would definitely eat it again. I feel as if I have accomplished two goalsin one  night - cook fish, and encourage someone to become a seafood lover. 

What about you? What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy seafood in your home?
