Buttery New England Baked Cod Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings


  • 1 pound cod fillets (or any white fish)

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).
