Boston Baked Cod

Boston Baked Cod

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!

Boston Baked Cod

  • 1 lb cod (or other white fish)
  • kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 6 T unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 t fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 t fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 2 t freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Heat oven to 375F.

Lay the fish in a 13×9 baking dish. Season very lightly with salt and pepper.

Mix the remaining ingredients and sprinkle over fish. Bake at 375, 8-12 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish) until the fish flakes with fork and crumbs are brown. Serves 4.

    How much is 1/3 of a stick of butter?

    • Erica (@Erica’s Recipes)

      I eyeball it – it’s ~2-1/2 to 2-3/4 tablespoons of butter. Doesn’t have to be exact :)

    Thanks for sharing at the FFF Linky party. This recipe looks delicious and would be great during the Lenten season for Friday’s! What time of the year is best for Cod?

    • Erica (@Erica’s Recipes)

      Thank so much Barbara! I think summer-fall is best up north, but I’ve never had any problem getting it year round here in Florida.
