  1. I would make this again with some changes, I have to watch my fat intake so I had already used fat free mayo as a sub. The lemon was a bit overbearing for my taste I will omit it next time. My change for the next round is using only 1.3/4 c mayo and 1 tbs seasoning, also I am gonna try spraying a pan with olive oil and brown the fish on a high heat to sear it as not to cook it thru and then finish it off in the oven. I will again as i did for the first round sprinkle some seasoned bread crumbs on top before baking.
  2. If I could give it 0 stars I would. I followed the recipe to a T and it was a lumpy oily mess, I would have had to run it through a strainer to find some of the fish. There was far too much garlic (unsalted just like it says, and it was still ungodly potent!) and far too much mayo. After all was said and done I tried to salvage the fish only to find it tasted just as awful as it looked. I ended up throwing it all away. Unless you are going to greatly minimize the mayo and cheese, RUN FROM THIS RECIPE!
  3. Yummy! I loved this & will definitely make it again. I mixed the onion right into the mayo/cheese mixture. Sooooo good!
  4. This fish is VERY flavorful! My husband & I enjoyed it over brown rice to mellow the sauce. I only used about 2 tbsp. of small diced white onion on top. I will be making this cod recipe again...thanks!
  5. I cut the recipe back to 2 servings and used blue cod filets - they are thin so I did not prefry thus not using the butter. I placed the filets in a baking dish mixed 2 tbsp of lite Mayo with the garlic & Italian herbs -painted the top of the fish with this mixture. Used 2 tbsp of Parmesan sprinkled on top and sprinkled on chopped onion Delish


  1. This sounds delicious and easy BUT the fat and sodium is horrible. May I suggest using Miracle Whip in place of mayonnaise and margarine ( I use 'I can't believe it's not butter') instead of butter. These two changes change the nurition per seving to Cal. 303 ; Total Fat 14; Sat fat 6; Choles. 90; Sodium 619; and Total Carbs. 3; A lot healthier in my estimation.


I am an avid cook of a wide variety of cultural cuisine and I am a bit of a culinary artist often creating my own recipes. Me and my daughter live in Big Bear California where we will have a small kitchen but we can both explore our passion for food and cooking together. Hopefully we can get a big kitchen someday!
