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!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ sleeve buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®), crushed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound thick-cut cod loin
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 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. 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. 4 Coat both sides of cod in melted butter in the baking dish.
  5. 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. 6 Garnish baked cod with parsley and green onion. Serve with lemon wedges.

  1. OK, found this recipe and tweaked it a bit to solve some of the problems that other people had mentioned. Here's how to kick up the flavor and get a less mushy texture.. I use a ream of whole wheat RITZ crackers.. crush them up, throw in a teaspoon of onion powder, teaspoon of garlic - Read more ...
  2. This is a perfect ten recipe! I followed the recipe with the exception of the baking in two stages. I just combined the ingredients, then pressed the mixture onto seasoned cod filets, then baked at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Oh, and instead of the buttery round crackers, I used panko bread crumbs, and boy - Read more ...
  3. 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 - Read more ...
  4. My family was unable to eat it. First of all, it needs more baking time. Secondly, the texture was smooshy and the crackers became soggy. We rarely eat cod fish so I was looking for a recipe to bake in the oven with my asperagus and potatoes. What a disappointment. Next time I will fry - Read more ...
  5. 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 - Read more ...
  6. EXCELLENT! Prepared entire dish, then baked about 20-30 min. Added shredded Parmesan and green onion to the cracker mix. FANTASTIC!
  7. 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, - Read more ...
  8. 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 - Read more ...
  9. 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 - Read more ...
  10. 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 - Read more ...
