This PARMESAN CRUSTED COD is a simple cod recipe that’s low carb and ready in just 15 minutes. Easy to prepare and the whole family loves this flavorful fish.
I’m always trying to come up with new ideas for seafood. It’s not something we eat a lot of, but my husband and I both have a goal this year to reduce some of our beef consumption and replace it with fish.
It’s a work in progress for sure and we’ve been having fun testing out new seafood recipes.
This Parmesan crusted cod is so dang easy to make and the fish bakes in about 10 minutes.
We love quick dinners like this!
Breading: We’re breading the cod in a mixture of grated Parmesan cheese and seasonings. You’ll just want to stir together Parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and red pepper flakes in a shallow dish.
Dredging: Add an egg to a second shallow dish and beat until it’s smooth. Dip the cod first in the egg and then into the breading mixture.
Bake: Place the fish on a greased baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes. The fish should easily flake apart with a fork.
Serving: We like to serve this Parmesan crusted cod with lemon wedges, but this homemade tartar sauce is always welcome on our table.
How to tell when cod is done:
The easiest way to tell when fish is done is to use your fork!
Place the fork into the fish and give it a little twist. The fish will flake apart when it’s fully cooked and no longer look translucent.
Fish is fully cooked at an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
