Baked Cod

Peter's Baked Cod with Seasoned Bread Crumbs and Lemon pairs perfectly with Peter Vella Delicious Blush.

Ingredients (serves 6-8)

12 oz.Cod filet about 1 inch thick (You may also use any fresh fish such as haddock, Pollack or Hake, in place of the Cod.)
1 Tbsp.Vegetable oil
2 tsp.Clarified butter
1/2 cupBread crumbs, plain not seasoned
2 dashesPaprika (mix with the bread crumbs)
1 Tbsp.Parsley, chopped (mix with the bread crumbs)
1 pinchSalt
1/2Lemon cut into wedges


  • Set oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Dip Cod in oil and then in bread crumbs on the cut side, not the skin side. (Crumbs should have the paprika and parsley mixed in with them).
  • Place on a baking pan, drizzle with 2 teaspoons clarified butter and sprinkle with salt. Bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Place under broiler to brown more if you like. (About another 2 minutes)
  • Place on plate with the pan juices, and lemon wedges.
  • Serve on a bed of par-boiled green beans and snap peas for a more formal presentation.

This fish recipe pairs perfectly with our Delicious Blush, a light-bodied wine that exhibits pleasing notes of red berry fruit and then finishes crisply-easily one of our most refreshing wines.
