Creamy Parmesan Baked Cod

4 years ago

Fish is a lean source of protein filled with Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. I typically try including it in my diet 2 to 3 times per week and am always looking for new ways to prepare it. As a result I have come to appreciate some of the simple white fish such as cod for the variety of ways it can be made. Since cod has a mild flavor adding some sort of topping or sauce is a nice way to dress it up a bit and give it some flair. With this dish I added a creamy cheese coating before baking it in the oven for remarkable flavor and texture.
