Baked Cod

This recipe calls for a bake/fry method that I prefer to stovetop frying. The fish is less likely to dry out and I don’t have to deal with the inevitable splashes that come from frying food in a pan.

Five Ingredients or LessYes



  • 2 thick cod, tilapia, or sole filets (6 to 8 ounces each), or other white fish
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges for garnish


  1. Pour the milk into a bowl. Add the fish and coat each piece well.

  2. Place the breadcrumbs in another bowl. Add the fish and roll in the crumbs until completely coated.

  3. Add the oil to the bottom of a casserole dish or baking pan, and add the fish. Bake in a preheated 325°F oven for 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn the fish over with a spatula, then return to the oven. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

  4. Serve with lemon wedges.
