All in the family love fish at least twice a week. I made this receipe, of course, but added Dill on the cod. I can't imagine to prepare fish without that herb, made for fish.

I never made Cod before and I am not much of a fish person. So my opinion, probably isn't the best lol. I did add paprika to the dish for a little more flavor and I ate it with some rice. It tasted a little bland for me so I did eat a couple of jalepenos with it. It wasn't horrible and it doesn't have a strong fishy smell, which helped me to eat it. Not horrible but, I like more flavor

Very tasty!!!! I made these for my family last night. They fought over the last piece. The only addition that I made was I added a splash of Olive Oil after the Cooking Spray.

This recipe is a quick and easy way to include heart-healthy fish into your everyday diet. It's very easy to make with just a few ingredients, and quick enough to prepare for a weeknight meal for the family! Studies show that eating fish a few times a week is very healthy and you can use this recipe with many kinds of fish, including tilapia, flounder, or any other white type of fish. You can also switch it up for the kids by using crushed corn flakes or other types of cereal, instead of the breadcrumbs. A great way to use up the crumbs at the bottom of the cereal box that the kids won't eat! In order to make the bread crumbs stick better, I put the fish in an egg wash (just an egg stirred up with a fork), and then I put the fish into the bread crumbs. Plus it adds a little bit of extra protein from the egg into the dish. Instead of using Pam, I also tried using olive oil which worked great and added some heart-healthy oil into my family's diet. Try it tonight - you'll like it!
