Lemon Parmesan Baked Cod with Roasted Broccoli

 
Simply delicious!

 How is THAT for yummy looking? My middle kiddle isn't normally too fond of fish unless it is in stick form (siiiigh) but she really liked this. My teenager and my hubster raaaaved that it was the best cod they had ever had. Which of course makes me beyond happy to hear. That says a lot cuz we've had a lot of cod over the years, so this one is definitely a keeper!

          Lemon Parmesan Baked Cod:
  • cod fillets (however many you want)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs (I used roasted vegetable generic ritz crackers, crushed)
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder (I use garlic salt mixture from Trader Joe's)
  • parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
  • 1 lemon

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2.  Mix the garlic powder into the breadcrumbs. 
  3. Spray a baking dish with non stick spray and place fish fillets in the dish. 
  4. Brush each fillet with olive oil on both sides and coat with your breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. 
  6. Remove from oven and squeeze fresh lemon juice over each fillet. Sprinkle each with Parmesan cheese and bake UNcovered for another 10 minutes or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

           Roasted Broccoli: (This stuff is addictive! My kiddies HATE broccoli and will wolf this down like animals and groan when it's gone!)

  • Several heads of broccoli, chopped up into smaller pieces
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • Parmesan cheese to top with

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Spray baking dish or cookie pan that has sides with non stick spray. 
  2. Put broccoli and olive oil in a Ziploc baggie. Shake it up really well. 
  3. Place broccoli in the baking dish and spread out evenly in a single layer. 
  4. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 25 to 35 minutes. 
  5. Remove from oven, remove foil, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and mix it all together. Pop back in the oven UNcovered for another couple minutes just til the broccoli is cooked to your liking. 
A squeeze of lemon over this is delicious as well!
