I Hate to Cook Recipe: Parmesan Baked Alaska Cod

see more by

Ok friends, here is recipe #4 in my I Hate to Cook series of easy recipes.

I actually served this at a dinner party recently and pulled it off as a semi-fancy dish! Well, dinner party might be an exaggeration, it was just for my sister and her husband, but I actually cooked something to serve to people other than my husband, which for me was a big accomplishment!

It was a SUPER easy meal to serve when guests are over because you can prep the fish ahead of time and put in the fridge until time to bake.  Same thing for a weeknight dinner, you can prep during baby’s nap time or when the kids are at school, and just pull out to bake.  Love recipes I can do ahead of time!  Here goes…

Recipe #4:

Parmesan Baked Alaska Cod
served on a bed of sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes

1 lb Alaska cod filets (thawed)
{we got ours fresh at Henry’s but my mom told me Trader Joe’s has them frozen which she loves too}

3 tbsp flour

3 tbsp cornmeal

1/4 tsp onion salt

1/8 tsp pepper

2 tbsp butter or margarine

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

2 Bags Washed Spinach
{Love the bags ready to go at Fresh & Easy}

2 tbsp olive oil

salt & pepper

Mashed Potatoes
{I used the already cooked and heat up kind – I am not that fancy of a cook yet!}

1. Combine flour, cornmeal and seasonings.
2. Melt butter in shallow bakng dish.
3. Dredge cod in flour mixture, place in dish.
4. Turn cod to coat with butter; sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
5. Bake at 450 F 8 to 10 minutes or until cod flakes easily with a fork.

Makes 4 servings

Meanwhile, heat approximately 2 tbsp olive oil in large skillet.  Add spinach (we used 2 bags for 4 people, it cooks WAY down.) Turn using tongs so that the oil coats and spinach cooks evenly.  Add salt & pepper to taste.  This really only took maybe 5 – 7 minutes.

Heat up your potatoes in the micro (or make them yourself if you are a much better cook than me!)

When all is done, serve a dollop of mashed potatoes, serving of spinach and fresh piece of fish on top.  HUGE hit! I am not even a huge fan of seafood, but I loved this recipe!


If you have an EASY EASY EASY go-to weeknight dinner recipe – one you think even I could do – please send it to me at jennifer@tinyoranges.com and I will feature your blog / recipe on my site after I give it the dummy test (me being the dummy) to see if I can make it.  And to see if I can not only make it, but if it is edible.   Because if I can do it, anyone can.

Happy cooking (… and not hating it!)
