Total Time


1 pound cod fillets, thawed, if frozen

1 cup panko bread crumbs

1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt, melted

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven 450°F. Line large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place metal cooling rack on top of baking sheet. Spray cooling rack with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Cut fish into bite-sized (2x1-inch) pieces. Pat fish bites dry with paper towel.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine bread crumbs, lemon zest, parsley, pepper and salt in shallow bowl; mix well.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir together melted butter and lemon juice in another shallow bowl.

  5. STEP 5

    Dip each fish bite into melted butter and lemon juice; then into bread crumb mixture, coating all sides of fish and shaking off excess. Place coated fish bites onto prepared cooling rack.

  6. STEP 6

    Bake fish bites 12-14 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.

Tip #1

If fresh cod smells fishy, soak cod in milk 30 minutes. Discard milk; pat cod dry before coating.
