Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dry polenta or cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 (85g) fillets cod fish

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
  2. In a small shallow bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, cheese, polenta, oil, herbs, garlic granules and pepper; set aside.
  3. Spray the rack of a grill pan with oil spray. Place the cod on the rack, folding under any thin edges of the fillets. Brush with the egg white, then spoon the crumb mixture evenly on top.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and is opaque all the way through.

Alternatives to cod:

Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
