Do you enjoy seafood? If I’m being honest, it would not be my first choice at any restaurant… but I am always on the lookout for new ideas for preparing fish (in this case COD), since it is so good for you, and is low in calories.

I found this recipe for Parmesan crust baked cod online and decided to make it for my husband and myself for dinner recently. The recipe, as written, serves 4 (but I cheated and cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us here to eat it). Parmesan crust baked cod is an extremely easy dish to prepare, which is always a plus, in my opinion!

Cod is a very mild in flavor fish that flakes easily when cooked. I’ve used it in other recipes including Beer Battered Fish and Chips, and Chili, Lime and Cumin Cod.

How To Make Parmesan Crust Baked Cod

Mix together flour, cornmeal and spices on a shallow dish. I use a dinner plate and just mixed ingredients with my fingers.  Rinse the cod fillets, then pat them dry on a paper towel.

Melt the butter in a medium sized bowl, then dip each piece of fish, one at a time in the butter. Let excess butter drip back into bowl, then place fish into seasoned flour/cornmeal mixture on plate. Turn to cover both sides of the cod with the seasoned flour mixture. Place coated fish into a baking dish. Repeat process with other fillets until all are coated and in the baking dish.

Drizzle fish pieces with the remaining melted butter. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese to cover top of fish.

Bake The Fish

Bake in a preheated 450° oven for 12-14 minutes. When done, the Parmesan topping will be golden brown in color, and the fish will flake very easily when tested with a fork. I sprinkle it with a few dried parsley flakes right before serving (optional).
