My recipe of the day, Crumb Topped Baked Cod which tops cod fillets  with crushed  croutons for an extra crispy topping.  It is then baked for 15-20 minutes until it easily flakes with  a fork.

So simple, easy and quick. I  love these kind of recipes  that can get dinner on the table in a flash. Don’t  you?

The Perfect Midweek  Dinner Plan

This  is a perfect weeknight dinner that I like to  serve with  something like gratin  of potatoes or  creamy buttered  noodles. A perfect veggies side could be something like a tossed  salad or  roasted asparagus (which cooks in the oven  in close to the same amount of time).

The Modern Simple and Healthy Fish

Years ago,  if we  wanted healthy fish, one would bake a cod  loin without much more than  salt  and pepper, give it a drizzle of butter (that is, if you were not eating said-dread fish because you were on a diet) and a squeeze of  lemon.

More elegant  prep involved coating the fish in crumbs or nuts as those became popular. While some crumb can be  soggy, the crushed croutons add a definitely crispy and well seasoned touch without much work.
