Crunchy Cod

I found this recipe on this blog today

 and had to make it for dinner.
It turned out amazing! The fish was so tender and the top was so crunchy.
I put on a bed of soy steamed bok choy and jasmine rice.

2-4 cod fillets
6 tbsp butter melted
1/2 tsp dijon
1 lemon juiced
1 handful chopped cilantro
a few tbs chopped dill
2 clove garlic
16-25 saltine crackers

 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper and add the fish to it. In a medium bowl whisk together the butter, lemon, mustard, parsley, dill and garlic. Taste and season with salt and pepper as well as additional lemon juice or mustard if desired. Add the cracker crumbs and combine well, the crackers should be moist but not sopping wet, if mixture seems too buttery add more cracker crumbs; too dry, add more butter in tablespoon increments.

2. Divide the crumbs between the fish and use your fingers to pat it evenly over top. Bake for 15-16 minutes depending on the size of the fish, until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F. Then broil for 1-2 minutes or until top turns golden, checking every 20 seconds.
