Baked Cod Recipe

This baked cod recipe is for all of those fish haters out there. Cod is a very mild fish.
Heck, I'm not even sure it is fish :)
My son, who does not like fish very much, prefers white fish to other oily fishes. This recipe is the kind of thing that he will eat, along with deep fried fish and chips. Who doesn’t like deep fried fish? Or deep fried anything for that matter?
I buy my cod frozen from Costco and it is not cheap. I think it is about $9 per pound but it comes in these perfect little plastic packages so I can choose to thaw only what I need. I buy wild cod or haddock and I always have it on hand for a quick dinner.
This baked cod recipe is cooked in a casserole which can be glass or whatever you have. Because of this job, I won a $1000 gift card to Willams Sonoma (years ago) and got my hands on this casserole.
I don’t think I would have bought it because it is $100 and I have two glass casseroles that work fine but since it was “free” – I went for it.
I have been using it for about 7 years and it is really stellar. It holds heat well and it is a pretty serving dish. If you are looking for a present suggestion and love casseroles – this should be on your list (see below on Amazon).
Coating the fish is easy. All you do is dunk in the butter and lemon juice and then dunk in the flour mixture.
A little bit of coating goes a long way to making this fish into something a little bit special.
I serve this with a cucumber salad and some brown rice. I love how light and healthy it is – but it tastes more decadent.
Do you bake cod? How do you prepare it?
