Cod isn’t a fish I cook with often but I have no clue why! It’s filling, hearty and delicious. After making this dish, Cod will definitely be in the mix! When I came home from the grocery store with my ‘new’ found fish, I put a post on Facebook requesting an easy, fast & flavorful recipe! Of course, my lovelies (many of you!) came to my rescue offering suggestions, recipe links and how they have prepared this fish!
I was most intrigued and inspired by a ‘Pretzel Crusted Snapper’ recipe that one of our readers, Jenele sent to me. Even though the recipe called for Snapper, it sounded really good, so I twisted it and changed a few things to make it my own. This dish turned out so good and you will never believe who got up from the dinner table for a 2nd piece of fish!?! BRIAN.
This is huge people. So huge.
Pin this recipe, write it down, print it, keep it forever. I hope you love this Pretzel Crusted Cod just as much as my family did! I can’t wait to make it again!
5 pieces Cod
1 cup chopped Pretzels
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried, ground mustard
2-3 tsp. vegetable oil
Honey (for drizzling)
Dijon mustard (for dipping)
Preheat oven 375 degrees.
In your food processor, mix together pretzels, onion powder, ground mustard, vegetable oil and s&p.
Spray a large skillet with Pam & pre-heat on med-high.
Rinse fish and pat dry.
Coat fish with pretzel mixture or roll the fish in the mixture.
Cook fish in pre-heated skillet for just a minute to brown both sides then place in a baking dish. (Don’t leave behind any pretzels in the skillet. Top with whatever is left and also put left over mixture from the food processor on top of the fish.
Drizzle the fish with honey.
Cover and bake for 15 minutes.
Uncover and bake for 5 minutes until fish is white and flakes apart easily.
Where does the Dijon come in? We dipped the fish in a little dijon mustard as we ate… YUM!!! YUM!!! YUM!!! The pretzels and dijon go together perfectly, with a little hint of honey… SOOOO GOOD!
I served the Cod over Long Grain & Wild Rice and steamed green beans and my whole family ate their plates all gone! Roman called it “chicken” and I just pretended not to hear him for fear he wouldn’t eat it if I told him it was fish. Whatev.
Big thanks to Jenele for the INSPIRATION link!
