Fish Loaf with Cheese Sauce

This is a great fish dish to add to your repertoire.  Even non-fish lovers, like it, and it’s great for kids.  I first started making it when we would go fishing and have a lot of small fillets from bass, blue gill, or perch.  Those still work well, but if I haven’t gone fishing, I usually use pollock or cod.  It’s a great way to start the new year, adding more fish to my diet.  I just noticed the red pepper pieces look kind of strange in this picture!
