This classic Boston Baked Cod recipe, with butter crackers and simply baked, is straight from my childhood growing up in New England. Very easy to make and absolutely delicious, this recipe will become a family favorite for you too.
We all have those dishes that completely encompass our heritage, our childhood, our memories. This dish is one of those for me. I grew up ordering this at restaurants all the time, and I truly love that it’s now a family favorite when I make it at home. Baked fish is super easy, and topping with a buttery layer of crackers is absolutely one of the best ways to serve it.
