New England Baked Cod with Ritz Cracker Crumbs
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
My recipe for Baked Cod is a tried and true family favorite perfect to enjoy year round. The secret to the crunchy, golden crumb topping is to use Ritz Crackers instead of boring old breadcrumbs. I added Parmesan cheese, garlic, parsley and pepper to the crumb mixture to give it lots of flavor. This is a perfect, easy dinner for seafood lovers!
