Crispy Cod Nuggets

It's another cold morning here:  -4 degrees! 

The scary thing is, it's becoming the "norm" and we're getting used to it!

On with the cod:

“Ultimate crispity ~ crunchity satisfaction!”

 Those are the words of Cooking Light that describe these nuggets to a tee. 

They’re fast and easy to make; however, what I really like is that the nuggets are baked, not pan-fried ~ they’re made without any fat.  If they don’t brown to your liking, slide them under the broiler for a short time. 

They’re crunchity delicious! 

Crispy Cod Nuggets 


2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
½ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
4 (6-ounce) cod fillets
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice cod into nugget shapes.
Place egg whites in a shallow dish.
Combine Panko and next 5 seasonings in a shallow dish.
Dip fish in egg whites, dredge in Panko mixture.
Place on baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
Serve with tartar sauce or salsa.

  1. Good, good eats.....hope spring can visit with you and family soon!

  2. These sound very good and I like that they can be baked and not fried - of course that is blasphemy here in the south :-)

  3. Pam, These cod fish nuggets look good and they sound good. A nice touch of spice in the breading and baking them would be our preference. High today here in East Tennessee will be 40 degrees and we're still sitting at a season total of 2 1/2 inches of snow. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Pam,
    These codd nuggets look like the perfect dish to serve in this brutal temps. I like that they are baked, not fried.

    You are so right about below zero temps becoming the norm, very scary, and that doesn't count the windchill effect. Stay warm!

  5. Délicieux !! I don't speak French...but I do know how to say delicious!!
    Brrrr.... I've never been anywhere near these kind of temps...

    Here in East Texas the temps are in the 20's and it's snowing everywhere except HERE.

  6. Dear Pam,

    Looks delicious. I bet they are like eating potato chips, you just can't stop!
    Blessings dear and stay warm. Catherine xo

  7. I like anything crunchy and love that is can be baked rather than fried.

  8. I like these using the Egg Whites, Pam!

    Only a few more weeks of winter. Those crocuses will look mighty fine when the snow melts & they sprout up. :)

  9. What a great way to get your "fried" fish! This looks great my friend!

  10. I love using panko for recipes like this because you can get that fried texture without all that greasy fat!!
    Try and stay warm!!!

  11. I have a hard time getting my husband to eat cod but I know he would love these crispity, crunchy cod cakes. Thanks, Pam!

  12. These look so crispy- You would never know they we're baked!

I am happy to hear what you have to say, and appreciate your taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
