I only made the cod but it was quite good. I liked how this had a slight crunch to the top, without being "too" bready. My daughter (who complained about having fish) had two helpings! I had a very thick piece of cod, so I baked it at least 15 min. more. I served with steak fries. I haven't made cod too often, but this has motivated me to try it more often.

wonderful recipe, thank you for posting!
I too just made the fish part of the recipe. and I had to make a couple of adjustments cus I was certain i had some cornmeal and discovered i didn't and the only crumbs i had were panco, but followed the recipe with everything else. added the flour, paprika etc., to the panco. turned out wonderfully crisp. we loved it. Thanks for posting it was a lovely way to make my cod.
