How to cook Buttery New England Baked Cod
- 1 pound cod fillets (or any white fish)
- 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed lightly (you could use less, but I like lots of crumbs)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 lemon
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Heat oven to 350°F (160°C).
- Rinse fish, pat dry with a paper towel and cut into medium portion sizes.
- Butter a medium casserole dish (big enough to fit all the pieces in one layer).
- Lightly salt and pepper each piece of fish and place them into the buttered baking dish.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine crushed crackers and melted butter.
- Sprinkle cracker mixture over the fish.
- Place casserole dish into oven and bake about 25-30 minutes, until fish is no longer opaque.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool briefly before serving. Sprinkle with lemon juice and enjoy!
The Buttery New England Baked Cod
recipe easy to cook and so good!
Baked Cod topped with buttery Ritz crackers and fresh lemon juice is one of the quintessential dishes of New England and it’s one of my favorites, for sure. It’s especially yummy on a chilly or damp evening, and it’s also an escape from all those grilled and healthily prepared dishes we try to eat most of the time.
This is an easy recipe which only requires a few ingredients and it works with any white, flaky fish, which offers lots of options when shopping (or fishing).
