Crispy Baked Cod

It's a Friday night fish fry - with a twist. This 30 minute cod is baked, not fried, but still has a satisfyingly crispy, crunchy crust. Try baked white potatoes or sweet potatoes, cooked in the microwave to save time, on the side.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F In a small skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add bread crumbs, stir to coat with butter, then cook, stirring frequently, until light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley and lemon zest. Let cool. Combine mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl.
  • Rinse fish and pat dry. Sprinkle each fillet lightly with salt, then place on a rimmed, foil-lined baking sheet and brush with mustard mixture. Press 1/4 of crumbs onto each fillet.
  • Transfer baking sheet to oen and bake until fish is no longer translucent (cut to test) and flakes easily, 10 to 15 minutes. If crumbs aren't sufficiently browned, broil fish 2 inches from heating element until crumbs are crisp and dark golden brown (watching carefully to prevent burning), 2 minutes longer. Serve immediately.

    Very tasty and easy. The crunchy bread crumbs make all the difference. This one is definitely a keeper.

    This was absolutely delicous! The fish has so much flavor and it is so easy to do. My husband and I loved it!! ( I used 1 teaspoon of dried parsley instead of fresh.) I will use this recipe probably every time I have cod!
