This recipe comes from The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. This is a really simple dish that doesn’t need a lot of specialised ingredients. A simple cod dish that is full of flavour and nutrition.


*1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus a little more to oil roasting pan
*2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
*6 garlic cloves, chopped
*1 cup breadcrumbs (I use seasoned)
*1/4 cup parsley, chopped
*1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
*1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
*1 egg, beaten
*2 lbs boneless cod fish fillets, 1 inch thick and cut into 4 pieces
*4 lemon wedges, for serving

1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2: Heat butter and oil in a saucepan over low heat and add the garlic for one minute to soften, not brown.
3: Remove pan from heat and add the bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper.
4: Mix to moisten the crumbs and seasonings.
5: Dredge each fish fillet in the beaten egg first.
6: Then dredge each fish fillet into the crumb mixture.
7: Place the coated fish fillets in an oiled roasting pan for the oven.
8: Bake the fillets in the preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. The fish inside should be flaky. Use a fork to make sure the fish flakes and is done.
9: Serve with lemon wedges.
