Baked Cod with Breadcrumbs, Parsley and Garlic

Baked Cod with Breadcrumbs, Parsley and Garlic

Yield: Makes 2 to 4 servings

Preparation Time: 35 minutes



7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic clove, chopped very fine
2 tsp. finely chopped capers
6 salted anchovy fillets, rinsed, optional but really good
1 pound Cod
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 lemon wedges or chile oil



Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

In a small skillet, heat 4 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat, then cook the garlic for 1 minute and add chopped capers.  Add the anchovies (or omit) and once they melt in 30 seconds to 1 minute, set aside until needed. Arrange the fish in an oiled baking casserole.  Sprinkle half the bread crumbs, half the parsley and some salt and pepper over the fish. Pour the anchovy sauce over the fish and cover again with breadcrumbs and parsley. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the fish and bake until it could flake, about 20 minutes.  Remove with a spatula and serve with lemon wedges or chile oil.
