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! Visit for more great recipe ideas.
