Baked Pangasius with Cream Sauce

So I know that I was attempting to eat healthy (go away, thunder thighs!!!) But I'm trying to introduce the boyfriend to fish. It's healthy, and I love it, and if you buy it here frozen, it's actually quite cheap and delicious. I also just got back from London, where I bought some absolutely lovely cheddar. So the other day I made this dish, and it was super easy and quick (with a bit of help)

Baked Pangasius with Cream Sauce

1 400g fillet of pangasius, frozen or fresh. (Pretty much any whitefish will do)
1 small onion

2 cloves garlic

150-200 ml heavy cream (you could sub light cream, but all I had was heavy)

1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 c. (120 g) grated cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Rinse fish and pat dry

Place in baking pan
Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Bake at 350 F (175 c) for about 10 minutes, until fish flakes with a fork

While the fish is baking, make the sauce.

Process the onion and garlic in a processor

heat a bit of oil or fat in a pan sautee the onion and garlic until fragrant
pour in the cream and add the mustard
simmer gently

Add the cheese, and stir til the cheese melts

salt and pepper to taste

When the fish is done, pour the sauce over the fish.
Serve with rice or veggies or potatoes

Have you tried the cheddar from the Cheesy shop on Sokolovska? It is excellent, and well priced.

No, but I've been meaning to get there! I think I tried it at your place. The cheddar I had was just scooped up at the only open Tesco my last evening in London :-(

We quite often buy a half kilo of the Cheesy shop stuff, and it is about 200kc for that much.
