Panko Baked Cod

I love fish. I think it is a nice, healthy, protein, IF you don’t muck it up with a lot of fancy sauces or deep-frying… Not that I wouldn’t love all the mucking it up…but I’m talking about it being a nice healthy protein.. I know all the top chefs on the Food Network say “make sure you know your fishmonger…”  Well… guess what? I DON’T have a “fishmonger”… So, what is the everyday Costco shopper cook to do…? Buy what you like, that you can afford, and make it your own… 🙂

I love halibut, but it is getting a little too pricey for my budget, even at Costco… I like cod too, if it’s baked just right…. I buy it frozen, at Costco, and this is one of my favorite ways of preparing it.

You will need:

Cod

Paprika

Chili Power

Black Pepper

Eggs

Panko Bread Crumbs

I buy Wild Alaskan Pacific Cod frozen at Costco

Thaw the cod in the refrigerator

Beat two eggs and add paprika, black pepper, chili power to taste. Dip the cod in the egg mixture making sure to coat both sides well.

Put panko bread crumbs in a bowl and add chili power, black pepper and paprika to taste just like you did for the egg mixture. Dip cod in the panko bread crumb mixture making to coat all sides evenly.

Line a baking pan with foil, spray a cooling rack with cooking spray and set the rack inside the baking pan. Put the breaded cod on the cooking rack and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes depending on your oven. Do not over bake or the cod will be dried out and that is never a good thing.

When the cod is done it should have a lightly browned crust.

I served the cod with broccoli/cauliflower salad (if you don’t know how to make it, just google broccoli salad and you will find many, many versions). I used the Taste of Home broccoli salad recipe but added cauliflower and lightened it up by using lite mayo and lite sour cream. Yum!

I also had some garlic mashed potatoes leftover from another dinner earlier in the week so I made garlic potato pancakes out of those mashed potatoes. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!

P1020459

Put this all together and you have a dinner that would make the best food network chef blush!!!

If you try this recipe I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

Stay Tuned!
