Crispy, roasted cod is a quick and tasty dish that won’t weigh you down, or run up your grocery bill. All this dish requires is mixing up a simple bread crumb mixture, piling it on top of cod fillets on a sheet pan, and throwing the whole thing in a hot oven. Serve the fish with a salad and you have a complete, low stress dinner. I put my cod fillets on a baking rack (per the original recipe), but this could easily done with just a sheet pan, lined with foil or parchment paper. If your cod fillets have a long, skinny shape, tuck the thinner end under so that they cook evenly. Fish doesn’t always make the greatest leftovers, but I actually really enjoyed this dish cold the next day.
