Crispy Skillet-Baked Cod

Crispy Skillet-Baked Cod

Serves 4

Here's a delicious alternative to fried fish that gets its great crunch from toasted panko bread crumbs.

  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for prepping the skillet
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages frozen cod, thawed and patted dry, or 4 (6-ounce) pieces fresh cod fillet

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place panko in a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet and bake, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer crumbs to a bowl. Add parsley, oil, salt and pepper, and toss to combine.

Brush the skillet with oil. Press the crumb mixture over both sides of cod pieces and arrange in the skillet. Press any remaining mixture over top of cod. Bake until fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes.
