Crunchy Panko Crusted Cod Recipe

Serves/Makes: 3 - 4 servings


  • 1 pound Cod fillets, cut into serving pieces
  • 1/4 cup flour, unbleached or all-purpose
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, or enough to cover the bottom of a large frying pan
How to cook Crunchy Panko Crusted Cod:
  • Lay out the flour, beaten egg and Panko bread crumbs on 3 separate plates, or shallow pans.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. (This should only take a few minutes, watch the pan and be careful not to burn the oil).
  • Season the fish with salt and pepper.
  • Dip the seasoned fish in the flour, then egg and then press the fish into the Panko bread crumbs, coating the fish evenly on all sides.
  • Place the fish carefully in the hot pan and reduce the heat to medium, but keep it at a sizzle.
  • When the first side is nicely browned (about 2-3 minutes) and the fish is turned over, you may need to reduce the heat to low, but keep the oil at a sizzle. Reducing the heat will avoid the fish from burning, and will cook it evenly all the way through.
  • When both sides are evenly browned, remove the fish from the hot oil and serve Crunchy Panko Crusted Cod immediately.
  • Goes well with roasted asparagus.
  • Enjoy!
