If you're looking to incorporate more fish into your diet, add this baked cod to your menu. The batter is light and crisps up in the oven. Paprika adds a touch of color and flavor to the fish. Once baked, the cod is perfectly flaky. Just make sure to shake the excess flour off the cod before baking so the coating does not end up soggy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
