Creamy Baked Cod Mornay Recipe: A French Fish Dish in 30 Minutes

Mornay sauce is a béchamel sauce that is made with grated cheddar cheese. Other cheeses like Gruyere, white cheddar and Emmental are sometimes used instead of cheddar cheese. Using the sauce over fish is a classic combination.

Fish in Mornay sauce is often made with potatoes. For this tasty cod Mornay recipe, we opted to serve potatoes on the side to keep the recipe quick and easy. Serve this baked fish recipe with mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin or with your favorite potato recipe. If you're not a fan of cod or can't find it, use another white fish. Just be sure to adjust cooking time depending on thickness.

Remove from the heat. Stir in the cheddar cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
