Living on Cape Cod we have access to great seafood year round. I have many ways I love to prepare fresh seafood. I found a similar recipe on the internet years ago and adapted it to suit my family’s taste. This is very easy, quick and delicious and I usually serve it with french fries. I suggest only using a mild white fish such as haddock or cod.
4 cod fillets
1/4 cup of your favorite Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup of Italian Bread Crumbs
Lemon wedges for garnish
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Mix well and set aside.
Spread the breadcrumbs on a plate.
On one piece of cod, spread a thin layer of the mayonnaise mixture on one side the fish. Dip the fish, mayonnaise side down, into the breadcrumbs. Gently shake off the excess breadcrumbs. Once one side of the fish is coated, place it breadcrumb side up in the baking pan. Repeat until all pieces of your fish are in the pan.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and the breadcrumbs begin to brown.
Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
