Panko Encrusted Cod

"A lighter version of fried fish because its baked. The panko gives a light crust, but it still gets nice and crispy. Serve this with potato wedges that you lightly spray with olive oil, season and bake and you have a healthier, no fried version of fish and chips. Try this with the best, easiest tartar sauce ever recipe #170190!"

Questions & Replies

  1. So I saw that someone tweaked this recipe by seasoning the cod first with a little Old Bay Seasoning. Not sure how this will taste. Unfortunately there was no follow up about how it turned out. Any thoughts?


  1. I baked my fish filets on a rack and it came out nice and crispy on BOTH sides. I did add an extra five minutes to bake time also. Great, easy, healthy... can't ask for more!
  2. I am rating this recipe 5 for the ease of use and versatility. Certainly you can add other herbs and spices to jazz up. I used cod and this recipe worked perfectly. I did have to add additional minutes (5 more min) to the baking time because my fish were pale looking. Thanks icancook66 for posting this recipe!
  3. This is a nice easy recipe with great results. The spices didn't overwhelm the flavor of the fish and the panko coating was a nice crispy contrast to the texture of the cod. Thanks.
  4. We have had this twice and it is awesome, so much so it is going on the permanent Tuesday menu :) yummy!
  5. My family loved this recipe. Light tasting.. and great to put in a fish taco. Easy to make and it actually looked exactly like the picture! No way


  1. I am going to season the cod with a bit of old bay seasoning and see how it turns out


My children laugh at my public name, but I truly couldn't come up with a name for me! Anyway, I am a married mom of 4. I have always liked to cook, but I have never been a recipe kind of gal, instead I have always just made things up as I went (unless it was a baked good). Usually things turn out really well, but my daughters are now late teens early 20's and want me to tell them how to make things, this is difficult when every time you make something it changes. This is how I joined RecipeZaar, I figured if I could begin to post recipes to the site then they could just go online and find my recipes without having to ask. I have also learned that it does save time to follow recipes, I especially enjoy Rachael Ray, even when I thinnk something sounds a little odd 9 times out of 10 it turns out wonderful. As I write I have a pot of stoup simmering waiting for dinner to come! My son has his "fan favs", with the girls mostly gone away to school now its fun to put food in front of him and watch him and his dad fight over it!
