What you'll need:

  • A big, thick cod fillet (675g or so)
  • 85g good white breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 60g melted butter
  • 3 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges to serve
Serves: 4



Season the cod well with salt and pepper, and in a mixing bowl, mix together with your fingers all the breadcrumbs with the parsley, garlic, a good squeeze of lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, pepper and butter.


Place your cod fillet in a shallow roasting dish, and cover completely with the breadcrumb mixture. Press down to make a thick crust. Bake in an oven at 220C for 20-25 minutes - the crust should be browned, and the fish should flake nicely. Serve with your choice of vegetables or a green salad.

There you have it -- a crusted cod with lemon and parsley recipe for you to try!
