RITZ CRACKER COD (for four)
2 pounds skinless cod fillets
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers (about 30 crackers)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
lemon and parsley for garnish
1.Preheat the oven to 350*. Grease a small baking pan or casserole pan with butter or a little oil. Rinse off the fish fillets with cold water and pat dry. Use long-nose pliers to remove any pin bones from the fillets.
2. Cut the fillets into large serving pieces. Place the fillets at the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with salt.
3. Melt the butter. Crush the Ritz crackers and place in a bowl; they should look like coarse breadcrumbs. Mix the melted butter with the breadcrumbs. Pack the crumb mixture over the top and sides of the fish fillets.
4. Place the fish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily. (Thin fillets may take less time, very thick fillets may take longer.)
5. Serve the fish with lemon and parsley.
