Almond Baked Cod

Dee Stillwell


I adopted this recipe when I was looking for a different way to make some cod filets. I had all the ingredients and it looked good. Trying to keep it a little healthier, the butter was reduced to 1/4 cup from the original 1/2 cup. I also changed the seasoning a little. It was baked at 400 degrees so it would brown. That also helped toast the almonds on the fish the last 10 minutes. This was instead of seperatly as the original directions said. Saved a step there. I served it with panko parmesan crusted zuccini wedges and quinoa. Enjoy!
