Select ingredients:


  1. Season the cod filets with salt and pepper and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  2. In a medium skillet, melt the butter and stir in the minced garlic. Cook for approximately 1 minute. Add the breadcrumbs and stir constantly until they start to become lightly browned.

  4. Spoon the breadcrumb mixture onto each filet and press the breadcrumbs into the fish until they’re thoroughly coated.
  5. Bake in a 375-degree oven for approximately 15 minutes or until the fish is thoroughly cooks and flakes easily with a fork.
