Baked Cod Recipes

Baked CodOkay, not the heart healthiest recipe in the world but it's tasty and easy and at least it's not deep fried. ;-) I highly recommend the packaged Good Seasons Zesty Italian salad dressing that you mix yourself for this recipe but you can substitute any seasoned oil and vinegar type dressing if so desired. Instead of serving with french fries, why not serve with the salt and vinegar chips you'll still have left instead?


  • 4 (6 oz.) cod filets
  • 1 cup Zesty Italian salad dressing
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 2 cups salt and vinegar potato chips, crushed
  • 1 lemon, quartered into wedges
  • malt vinegar as a condiment, if desired


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and coat a baking dish with cooking oil.

Place the filets in salad dressing in a large glass bowl and marinate, covered in the refrigerator, for 30 minutes. Do not marinade longer or the fish will begin to break down and become mushy.

Meanwhile, mix the cheese and chips together in large bowl or deep plate. Press the marinated fish filets into the cheese and chips mixture, coating both sides, place filets in baking dish, top evenly with any remaining cheese and chip mixture and discard the leftover marinade.

Bake uncovered until the filets flake when testing with a fork, about 10 to 15 minutes, and serve with a lemon wedge per filet.

For fish lovers, go for it. Prepare the grill, or preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

I'm back again. I thank all of you for your great help in the past. I'm looking for the recipe that the Cafeteria "Lubys" has for their baked cod. I loved it and they have closed here. It had a mayonnaise like base to it with crumbs of some sort on the top. I've tried to duplicate it but it is not right. Can anyone please give me their recipe for this great cod fish dish? I would love to have it and love the dish so much as well as my sister. God Bless and Thank You Again.

Hi Angelheart -- how about this one? And try it with different brands of mayonnaise - it might make a difference! Sometimes you really have to work at getting something "just right".


Luby's Cafeteria Baked White Fish

8 (6 ounce) skinless white fish fillets (cod, haddock, or other fish fillets)
1/2 cup flour
3 1/2-4 cups mayonnaise
lemon pepper seasoning
dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat fish with flour, shaking off excess. Spread mayonnaise evenly over fish. Sprinkle with lemon pepper and parsley. Place in baking pan large enough to hold in a single layer.

Carefully pour water around fish to 1/8 inch depth, without wetting the toppings. Bake approximately twenty minutes or until fish flakes when tested with fork and top is light golden brown.

Thanks for the recipe, I moved to Oregon from Texas and miss Lubys and my favorite baked white fish. Hi Angelheart, I too lived in Clyde. Small world.

Mmm 3.5-4 cups, that's a lot of mayo! That's equivalent to almost the same volume of vegetable oil. Maybe just brushing the tops with melted butter before seasoning would work.


Grated cheese too, don't forget that. (sharp Cheddar and/or Parmesan to taste) Brush on mayo afterwards. The result might be even better than the cafeteria version.

Talk about a small world. I was born & raised in Abilene Texas and my great grandparents lived in Clyde. I have been looking forever for this recipe since I now live in the UK. I am trying it tonight.

I am looking for a recipe you had in a past flyer for cod which was baked in a casserole dish. Can you help?


Editor's Note: I can't seem to find one, maybe one of the readers has a Cod recipe to offer.

Re: Cod recipes. I live near "New Bedford" MA." The fishing capital of America! I will start to hunt for flyers in the markets. But you should look for "Portuguese" recipes etc. They are famous for cod recipes,and of all great seafood recipes. Keep my addy and drop me line soon!
