Parmesan Panko Crusted Cod

Parmesan Panko Crusted Cod recipe is a great way to introduce fish into your diet as well as to your children.

We've all heard about Parmesan Crusted Chicken and if you have tried it know what a mouth-watering delight it is.

While it sounds complicated, it is a relatively easy recipe to make.

And while lemon pepper Cod is easy to cook and tastes great, we decided to try this recipe with fresh Cod and, to our surprise loved it.

Here on Cape Cod we get some of the freshest sea food, so if you have a market that brings in fresh fish get yourself a couple pounds and have a mouth-watering delight!

The other alternative is, if you love to fish and go deep sea fishing, catch a couple of keepers, fillet them and serve them up with this recipe.

In this recipe we purchased 2 pounds of fresh fish fillet that was boneless. We cut the fillet into 4 sections and rinsed them in fresh cool water.

We prefer to bake fish because it is easier to clean up afterword. 

Try it then let us know what you think.
