Broiled Cod in Lemon Butter Sauce

  • 4 8-oz cod fillets
  • 6 T butter, melted
  • 4 T lemon juice
  • 1 t oregano
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 T garlic-flavored breadcrumbs

Wash and dry the fillets. Set aside. Preheat the broiler.

In a shallow baking dish mix the butter, lemon juice, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. (If the broiler is gas, be sure the baking dish is flameproof.) Put the fillets into the dish and turn them once or twice to completely coat them.

Put the baking dish under the broiler and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the dish from the broiler, turn the fillets and sprinkle them with the breadcrumbs. Broil for 5 more minutes.

Transfer the fillets to a serving platter, pour over them any sauce remaining in the baking dish and serve.

Gray: I was pleased with how this turned out. I have tried to broil fish fillets in the past and not been very pleased. The flavor and texture of the fish was very good, however I think that the fillets we had were smaller than the recipe called for and cooked a little faster. I put too many breadcrumbs on top and they got a little burned. Just be sure your breadcrumbs are soaked in the butter, as those did not burn. This was super fast and easy to make. We had a salad and a roll with the cod, which made for a quick meal.

Katie: I was a little hesitant to try this, as on our New England vacation I tried baked scrod and did not like it. However, this was delicious! The lemon was fairly strong, but it went very well with the fish. The fish were flaky and I really enjoyed them.
