A simple, crispy, and delicious oven baked fish recipe. You can substitute any white fish in this recipe.
6 boneless, skinless cod fillets
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup of butter
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup fresh minced parsley
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Over medium heat, melt 1/4 cup of butter and add panko breadrumbs. Stir until breadcrumbs have absorbed all the butter. Take the pan off the heat. Add parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Mix well and let cool.
Meanwhile, place fish fillets on parchment lined cookie sheet. Pat fish dry and brush with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Place cooled panko mixture over each fillet and gently press into fish.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily and panko crumbs are golden brown.
Cover loosely with foil and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
