Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Pam 7

"Simple, fast, and delicious describes this baked cod recipe. Bake for two sets of 10 minutes each and you have the perfect ten dinner! This recipe was a favorite request from a local restaurant. They closed after years in business and we are happy to share a version of their most requested recipe. I serve this with rice pilaf and fresh spinach that has been lightly seared in olive oil and garlic. Yummy!"

Not bad once you go used to the smooshy texture. After about one filet, was getting tired of it.

This was an incredibly easy recipe, and the results were great. My husband, who doesn't usually like fish dishes thought it was really good. I did use Italian seasoned bread crumbs in place of...

I've made this twice in the past 3 weeks, tweaked slightly to fit my tastes. I used italian bread crumbs instead of crackers, adding melted butter and garlic to taste. I omitted the wine, and ...

This was very yummy and so easy! I used cooking spray instead of butter to coat my pan (healthier option). I had cod filets instead of loins, but 20 minutes was all it took. I didn't have fre...

The fish does, indeed, come out flaky and good. I saw another rating that used bread crumbs, so I did the same. Also, I substituted olive oil for the butter. The recipe has too many steps. I ...

EXCELLENT! Prepared entire dish, then baked about 20-30 min. Added shredded Parmesan and green onion to the cracker mix. FANTASTIC!
