Oven Roasted Cod with Panko and Herbs (and some great fish recipes for Lent)

If you are looking for some fish recipes for lent this is a great easy dish to try!  You could probably use any white flaky fish – haddock would be great but Cod was perfect for this.  It takes minutes to prepare and the flavor is great.  The panko gives this fish a very nice crunch, which everyone really liked.

For the tartar sauce I just mixed up some mayonnaise (light), relish, minced onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  I don’t have a recipe but just mix it up to taste.

Here are some other yummy fish recipes to try as well:

Oven Roasted Cod with Panko and Herbs
Recipe type: Main
  • ½ cups plain bread crumbs (I used panko)
  • 1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley (I used dry about 1 tsp but fresh parsley would be great)
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • Coarse salt
  • 4 (6 to 8-ounce) cod fillets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Pile parsley, garlic, lemon zest, and a little coarse salt on the cutting board. Finely chop the lemon-garlic mixture, then add to the plain bread crumbs. Add a little of the olive oil to this and toss gently with your fingers until the oil lightly coats the breadcrumbs.
  3. Lightly brush the top of each fillet with olive oil and dip in to the bread crumb mixture. Brush a little bit of olive oil in the bottom of a baking pan then place fillet in the pan, crust side up. Roast fillets in oven about 12 to 15 minutes.

    I love the recipe with the bread crumbs. I bet it made a nice crust on the fish. I think I could eat fish like this every day.

  2. Panko is such an easy and delicious way to coat meat. I’d love to get more fish into my diet, and not just at Lent!

  3. This looks delicious. I love panko coatings on fish. They stay so much lighter! I’m headed to check out the mahi recipe now. Thanks!

  4. really delicious meal!
