Butter Crumb Baked Cod

I did not used to be a fish lover.  At all.  Even when I started regularly eating other seafood like shrimp and scallops I still was not a fan of fish.  I’m not entirely sure whether it was the fishy smell or taste or what.

Sometime in the last few months I changed my mind about fish.  It didn’t really happen gradually either, just one day the switch flipped.  In the past few months I’ve had fish more times than I can count for the rest of my life combined.  (Unless of course you count fish sticks…which I don’t)  I’ve had fish fry a few times at restaurants and I’ve even made fish at home a few times.  If cooked in the right way, fish can be delicious!

The recipe that I used for this particular fish dinner comes from the fabulous blog Can You Stay For Dinner?.  You can find the recipe here.

I must admit though, the husband did all of the baking on this one.  Although, there wasn’t a lot of prep or baking involved so it made it very easy.  Even though I didn’t physically do it myself, we’ve had it a couple of times now and I’m confident in saying that this is a pretty foolproof recipe.  Really though I’m not sure I ever doubted that fish with melted butter and buttery cracker crumbs would be delicious.

As a side we had Alexia Oven Fries with Rosemary and Garlic.  Have you had these fries? I knew I had to try them after Laura proclaimed her love for them and now I see why.  I’m pretty sure they are the best frozen fries that I’ve ever had.  And no, the Alexia people are not paying me to say that, they don’t even know who I am.  I just really love them and I think you would love them too! My only problem: not making a meal out of the whole bag!

Overall this was a delicious dinner and one that I’m sure we will be making again in the future.  Also: fish is not scary to cook, or eat…..especially if its covered in butter 🙂

Ease: A, no complaints by the husband, and he made it multiple times so I’ll take that as a good sign!
Taste: A+, really good! This might be the first meal involving fish that I’ve actually had more than once.

Would I make it again?  Definitely. I have already, and I’m sure I will again.

  1. Isn’t it strange how your tastes can so suddenly change??

    Good to know this is easy ! I’ve never cooked fish other than the frozen sticks/filets in the oven! I’ve been too scared!

    • It is so crazy!

      My only tips for cooking fish is get fresh fish rather than frozen, and baking it is easier than pan frying it – its less likely to burn in my experience. But yes, this is easy. You could totally do it. 🙂
