Crunchy-Topped Cod

READY IN: 25mins
Top Review by mama smurf

Made for My 3 Chefs October 213 tag game. I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and I also seasoned the fish before adding the tomatoes and bread crumbs. Next time I think I will add some minced jalapeno (for a little kick) and slivered onions and minced garlic for more flavor. Overall this is a great dish that you can add or leave as is. Thank you for posting.
