Baked Lemon Cod

This simple recipe is easy to make with a very few ingredients. If you are looking for a light meal, with a lot of flavour this healthy dish is your answer.


2 cups Panko Bread crumbs
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest (from 2 lemons)
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
4 cod fillets (4 ounces each), skinned


Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Combine bread crumbs, oil, parsley, zest, and salt.

Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet.

Press fish in crumb mixture, turning to coat. The natural moisture of the fish should be enough to allow the breadcrumbs to adhere without an egg wash.

Transfer to wire rack. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Ensure that the fillets bake evenly by flipping them half way through the cook time. This will allow the bread crumbs to achieve that crisp golden brown texture on each side.
