Step 1

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly oil it to keep it from sticking.

Step 2

Prepare the Crispy Coating. In a shallow dish, mix breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Drizzle olive oil over the mixture and toss to mix. The oil helps create a crisp and golden coating.

Step 3

Coat the Cod Fillets: Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Dip each fillet into the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the coating gently.

Step 4

Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the coated cod fillets on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each fillet. This ensures even baking and a crisp exterior.

Step 5

Bake to Perfection: Bake the cod fillets in the preheated oven for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the coating is golden and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Cooking times may vary, so monitor closely to prevent overcooking.

Step 6

Prepare Lemon-Herb Drizzle: While the cod is baking, prepare the lemon-herb drizzle. In a small bowl, combine melted butter or olive oil, fresh lemon juice, chopped parsley, salt, and black pepper. Whisk together until well combined.

Step 7

Drizzle and Serve: Once the cod fillets are done baking, drizzle the lemon-herb mixture over them. This imparts a burst of freshness and complements the crispy coating. Serve the Crispy Baked Cod immediately.
