Parmesan and Paprika Baked Cod

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
Another great way to bake cod, it comes out tender, flaky, perfectly done and not fishy (the recipe will also work for tilapia, flounder, halibut, haddock). Cod is coated with Parmesan, paprika and parsley, then baked. Just 20 minutes and you have a healthy and tasty main dish for your weeknight dinner.

Instructions

4. Coat the fillets with the cheese mixture. Place on a baking sheet (I usually cover it with aluminum foil for an easier cleanup).
