Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Recipe by  

"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!"

I knew I could trust this recipe because I prepare cod loins like this routinely with consistently excellent results. Cod is a mild, flaky white fish that is not expensive and is absolutely reliable in my experience (i.e., not fishy). Prepared this way it is tender, flaky and perfectly done, but obviously the cooking time will depend upon how thick your fish is. I have never added wine to the pan, however, and decided to give it a try. While I didn’t find it detracted from the dish, it didn’t add anything either – so I would say drink it instead. I used bread crumbs instead of “buttery round crackers,” as I generally don’t keep “buttery round crackers” (such as Ritz) on hand. I added enough melted butter to moisten the crumbs, along with fresh minced garlic, parsley and rosemary. (Yum) I gave the fish a little salt and pepper before topping with my seasoned bread crumbs, then popped it into the oven for 20 minutes. In other words, I skipped the two-step process directed in the recipe as I didn’t find it at all necessary. As it always is, this was delicious. I served it over wilted spinach, tho’ I would have loved it with some pasta with garlic and olive oil too. (I was disciplined tonight since Hubs is out of town) For those not confident making fish, this is a great choice. For those who ARE confident making fish, this is a great choice.

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

This was super simple and delicious! LOVED the buttery crumb topping and the wine really gave this a nice flavor. I thought this could use a bit of salt, but that's my personal preference. I forgot to add the green onions, but I'll try to remember to do that next time (not that it needed it, IMO). I will def be making this one again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

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 the crackers, because I didn't have any crackers on hand, but they turned out fine. I would definitely make this dish again.

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 made it even easier to prepare by skipping the 2 step process. I simply laid the cod in a buttered baking dish, sprinkled with a little lemon pepper, patted the breadcrumbs on top, then gave it a little squirt of lemon juice. Popped in the oven for 20 min and voila! Perfection!

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 fresh parsley on hand so I mixed dried parsley in with the cracker mixture. I added a minced clove of garlic too. I seasoned my cod filets with a little salt/pepper before adding the topping. I would recommend putting the topping on right away, and cooking the filets for a total 20 minutes uninterrupted. I think the topping would get a little crispier that way.

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 sprayed the pan, then drizzled with olive oil. Placed cod in pan, drizzled the cod with olive oil, sprinkled the crumbs on top, poured wine around cod, squeezed lemon on top of cod, baked for 15 minutes. Because we did not use the salty crackers, we noticed the fish needed salt. Will add salt next time.

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