Oven "Fried" Cod Filets

Recipe coming at you for and oven baked crispy fish! This is a really easy and simple dish that can be thrown together on a week night. I used cod but really any mild white fish will work. Tilapia would be really good. IMG_2042Ingredients: 

  • 2 small cod filets (I used one big one, cut in half)
  • 3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  •  1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Pat the filets of fish dry with a paper towel
  3. Season both sides with salt and pepper
  4. On a plate, mix together the rest of the seasonings and bread crumbs
  5. Whisk the egg in a bowl
  6. Dip each of the fish filets in the egg and place onto bread crumb mixture and fully coat
  7. Place filets on a pan greased with cooking spray and into the oven
  8. Bake for five minutes, flip, and bake for another five minutes
  9. Turn oven to broil and broil for about one minute or until golden brown

I served mine with roasted vegetables, tomato slices and a dollop of tzaziki.
