We like baked fish, it’s easy, tasty and quick. My husband loves those canned French-fried onions, and I sometimes use them in place of bread crumbs on top of casseroles. Here it’s serving the same purpose, replacing buttered bread or cracker crumbs on top of our baked fish. Simple can be delicious.
Crispy Onion Baked Cod
¼ Cup butter -- melted
1 teaspoon ground mustard
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 can French-fried Onions -- (6 ounces) crushed
4 Cod Fillets -- (4-6 ounces each)
Thaw and dry the fish fillets.
In a 9 x 12" quarter-sheet pan or rimmed cookie sheet, combine butter, mustard, garlic salt and pepper. While oven is preheating to 400°, let butter melt in pan in oven a few minutes. Remove pan from oven to hot pad, stir butter mixture to distribute seasonings.
Dip the fillets in butter mixture on both sides, then top with crushed onions.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 10-12 minutes or about 10 minutes per inch of thickness or until fish flakes with a fork.
Yield: 4 servings.
