  • 4 portions cod fish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • Additional lemon slices or wedges for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Lay cod fish filets out in the prepared baking dish. Season fish with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the butter, parmesan, flour, garlic, basil, onion powder, dijon mustard, and lemon juice.
  • Top each fillet with a large spoonful of the butter mixture.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fish. The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
