Bubba's Oven-fried Cod



This is good and crunchy fish, minus all the fat. 

Bubba just vacationed in London recently and almost had his fill of fish and chips ~ he loved the meal!   Traditionally, fish and chips are served wrapped in paper to soak up all the grease, probably not a good thing.  


Back at home now, to cut the grease and calories, Bubba coats the cod in a corn meal and Parmesan breading and bakes it.  In his cooking, he goes heavy on the spices and seasonings, adjust to your taste. 



There are lots of baked cod recipes out there, but this one is a favorite for him and me too.   It’s our go-to recipe for baked fish that’s fast and easy enough to satisfy your fish fry cravings any day of the week. 

Bubba’s fish fry is so good you don’t have to go out to a fish fry to enjoy it. He thinks this would be a great breading for chicken also. 

Try it and make it your go-to baked fish recipe also!

This dish almost takes him back to London!  Thanks for sharing, son!


BUBBA’S OVEN-FRIED COD 
Printable recipe

Ingredients: 
2 large cod fillets
1/2 cup 2% milk

Breading:
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (not grated powdered kind)
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
3/4 tablespoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 fresh lemon, optional 

Method:
 
Preheat oven to 400° and line baking sheet with foil.
Coat foil with cooking spray.
Pour milk into a shallow bowl and drag the fillets through the milk coating all of it.  
Mix the breading ingredients together in another shallow bowl. 
Dredge the fish in the breading, pressing it in so the whole fillet gets covered, cover with foil.
Cook at 400° for 30 minutes, longer for thicker pieces.  
Squirt some lemon juice on it if you like.




Enjoy!

  2. Great recipe for those who like fish and cornmeal as I do. I never run out of my favorite cornmeal which is of a specific brand: italian Nicoletti. The label on the package says, only 66 calories per 100g, when cooked. As for fish, I tend to buy polluck filets (I first tasted it at McDonalds in a bun, and fell for it).

    1. Thanks, Duta! Cornmeal makes all the difference. I've had polluck, it's a good whitefish, but have never seen it here where we live. Thanks for the visit!

  3. Sorry, the brand is Nicoli, and it's glutten free. I use it a lot to make polenta.

  6. Fish N Chips can really be good, if not so healthy. This sounds like a health improvement -- would also be good in other recipes that need breaded cod, like fish tacos.

  7. Much as I'd like the deep fried version, the baked version gives it a run for the money. It looks terrific!

    1. Thanks, Larry! Baking definitely cuts the calories and is easy, but the real thing is good too.

  11. Bubba is a good cook! Love the breading for this -- and you're right, it sounds like it would be terrific with chicken. Although I want to try it with fish, first. LOVE fish 'n chips! Such a wonderful meal. This is excellent -- thanks.

  16. I think the next time I make this I'll have to add a pint (or four) of Guinness to wash it down. That might remind me more of real English fish & chips :)
    This had one thing over the fish there- this didn't have even a fraction of the grease which is great. I hate cleaning everything up after making a good greasy meal!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Woo hoo, Bubba! Guinness would be great with it! And this takes most of the work out of the clean-up for sure. Great fish, delicious! Thanks for the recipe! xoxo

  18. I love that coating (and I love the Guinness idea, too, Bubba!)

  19. Bubba sure knows how to treat a fine fish like Torsk (Cod). A baked fish with crunch, perfect. I like the spice level and have some hot smoke paprika that I might even try in Bubba's recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks, Ron! He likes plenty of spices and heat in his food! I'll have to look for that hot smoked paprika. Have a good day!

  21. Sounds perfect to me will be trying this out very soon. Enjoy your week Diane
