    TMoney's Note:

    I combined two different recipes and tweaked here and there. I can't remember where they originally came from. The cod will taste just like lobster! It melts in your mouth. This is a family favorite and ask for it every week. This is not a low-calorie dish so beware!!

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Dissolve the sugar and salt in the water then pour over the cod fillets in a large saucepan.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil (which may take a while if using frozen fillets).
    4. 4
      Boil 4 to 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Scoop fish out and drain very well, blotting as necessary.
    6. 6
      Place in a baking dish and brush with 6 Tbs of melted butter (must be the real cahoona, not margarine).
    7. 7
      While the fish comes to boiling point I start on the topping.
    8. 8
      Melt the rest of the butter in a saucepan and add the onion, sauté for 1 minute.
    9. 9
      Add the crab, parsley, dill, garlic powder and a touch of salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      Stir for 1 minute.
    11. 11
      Remove from the heat and add your crushed crackers.
    12. 12
      I top the buttered fillets with this mixture (you may want to use your hands to pile it high if your fillets are chunky); sprinkle with a little more melted butter and the lemon juice.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle with parmesan to taste.
    14. 14
      Place in oven until topping is slightly brown.
