Baked Cod

This recipe is one of our favorites. It’s fabulous. Yes, it’s fish.  And yes, it stinks up the house. But it also starves you till it’s ready.

Here’s all you need: cod filets, butter, saltine crackers, egg white and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 400F. Drop your butter in the baking dish and place it in the oven.

While your waiting for the butter to brown. Start preparing the other ingredients.

Crush your saltine crackers.

Lightly beat the egg whites.

When the butter is browned, remove it from the oven and set it near your work area.

Then pat dry the cod filets with a paper towel.

Coat them with the egg white and then the crushed saltines. And put in the baking dish.

Sprinkle some pepper on them and put the dish in the oven.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, taking out of the oven every 5 minutes to baste with the butter that’s in the baking dish.

And you have baked cod filets.

 We usually eat them with just a salad.


Thanks to my father-in-law for this recipe. We have it almost every week.
