The quintessential New England dish with fresh cod, lemon, butter and crunchy Ritz cracker topping.
Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 2-3
  • 1 lb. Cod (or any white, flaky fish)
  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed lightly (you could use less, but I like lots of crumbs)
  • 1-2 Tb. unsalted butter, room temperature (for the casserole dish)
  • 3 Tb. unsalted butter, melted
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rinse fish, pat dry with a paper towel and cut into medium portion sizes.
  3. Butter a medium casserole dish (big enough to fit all the pieces) with the softened butter.
  4. Lightly salt & pepper each piece of fish and place into the buttered dish.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, combine crushed crackers and melted butter; sprinkle over the fish.
  6. Place casserole dish into oven and bake about 25-30 minutes, until fish is no longer opaque and the cracker topping is nicely browned.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice and enjoy!
