Makes 3 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds cod fillets thawed if frozen

  • 3/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese (sandy consistency)

  • 1 lemon zested and juiced

  • 4 cloves garlic minced

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter melted

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

  2. Pat the cod fillets dry using paper towels. Remove bones, if any.

  3. Prepare a shallow bowl with melted butter and minced garlic. Stir together until well-mixed.

  4. In another shallow bowl, add parmesan and paprika. Stir together until well-mixed.

  5. Prepare a baking dish large enough for all cod fillets to sit in a single layer. Line the dish with parchment paper.

  6. Working with one fillet at a time, dip it into the melted butter and flip to coat all sides, then into the parmesan mixture to coat all sides, and then place it onto the lined baking dish.

  7. Repeat for all other cod fillets and keep them evenly distributed on the baking dish. Distribute any remaining parmesan on top of the fillets, pressing down to adhere.

  8. Sprinkle parsley and half of the lemon zest on top of the cod fillets.

  9. Bake at 400 F until the cod is cooked through, about 15 minutes. The cod is cooked when it can be easily flaked using a fork.

  10. Spoon lemon juice on top of the cod, about 2 tablespoons. Sprinkle remaining lemon zest on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
