Perfect Ten Baked Cod


"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!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 sleeve buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®), crushed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound thick-cut cod loin
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place 2 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl; melt in microwave on high, about 30 seconds. Stir buttery round crackers into melted butter.
  3. Place remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a 7x11-inch baking dish. Melt in the preheated oven, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove dish from oven.
  4. Coat both sides of cod in melted butter in the baking dish.
  5. Bake cod in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven; top with lemon juice, wine, and cracker mixture. Place back in oven and bake until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 10 more minutes.
  6. Garnish baked cod with parsley and green onion. Serve with lemon wedges.
