Great buttery recipe for codfish. I found this on the website for the New York Seafood Council and tried it last night. It was super good and easy to make. I didn't baste as directed because I wasn't sure if the crumbs were supposed to be spooned over the top of the fish or not. I also had to cook mine a little longer, but it came out great.


  1. Sprinkle bread crumbs on bottom of a greased, shallow baking dish.
  2. Place cod on top of crumbs.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over fish.
  4. Bake uncovered in 450* oven@ 10 minute per inch thickness of fish, basting several times.
  5. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

Really enjoyed this. The Dijon gives a nice little tang to it. I didn't use the full amount of butter and just poured the sauce over the fish and baked. I didn't even bother basting and it came out fine. Very easy to put together. Might be nice to add some garlic to it.

Good recipe. I didn't change anything. The mix of breadcrumbs and butter is delicious, but it was very heavy for my taste. After a few bites I couldn't eat any more. Thanks Surus.

Wow! I'm not a big fish fan but this was *good*! Easy, too. Hubbby, who is a fish fan, particularly enjoyed this. I was a little leery of using an entire stick of butter, but since I had 2 pounds of cod fillet, the amount of butter was fine. I *did* spoon the crumb/butter mixture over the fish and it turned out great. I, too, had to cook mine a bit longer to get the fish done, but it was perfect and had great flavor! This is definitely going in my recipe rotation because I'm always looking for easy, tasty ways to prepare fish.
