Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cod filets, about 5 ounces each
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Lemon, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Place the egg in a shallow dish.
  3. Add the Parmesan  and seasonings to a second shallow dish and mix together with a fork to combine.
  4. Dip each cod filet first in the egg and then in the Parmesan mixture to coat. Arrange on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until fish is easily flaked with a fork. 
  6. Serve with lemon wedges or tartar sauce, if desired.

Notes

We use the powdery Parmesan cheese in the green can for a finer breading, but you could also use shredded Parmesan for a different texture.
