After reading several of the reviews for this recipe, we decided to forgo the egg white and replace it with 2T of mayo. mixed w/ 1t. lemon juice. We brused each piece of fish w/ the mixture, followed by the crumb topping. It was delicious! This was an inexpensive, quick and easy meal to prepare. Read More

This was okay. I thought the topping was a little dry. If I do this again I'll probably make a light sauce to drizzle on top of it. Read More

THe best cod I've ever eaten. The only reason why I'm giving it a four star is because I took the suggestion of lemon and mayo instead of egg whites and I think it made a big difference in taste. I sauteed 3 cloves of garlic in oil then added it to a little mayo and lemon juice until it was thin. I then brushed that on the fish instead of the egg whites. It was awesome and super flavorful.

I made a couple changes. I rubbed the fish with fat free mayo rather than the egg white. I also didn't add the oil to the crumb mixture. Instead, I patted the crumbs onto the fish and then sprayed it with my oil spritzer. I baked as directed. It was so good. I've shared the recipe with a few people who also really enjoyed it. Thanks!!!! Read More

I have to agree with what other reviewer's have already said here. Lose the egg white and replace it with a mayo-lemon juice combo ~ I use 2 Tbsp. mayo and 2 tsp. lemon juice(just ehough to leave a hint of lemon with every bite.) Soak the fish fillets in buttermilk for about an hour before preparing to eliminate any "fishy" taste, add a bit more seasoning and this is a delicious, healthy meal, one which the hubs and I have been enjoying for weeks now. Thanks for the post, dakota! Read More

Couldn't see brushing the filets with egg white, but neither could I see swabbing them with mayonnaise as it seems most reviewers chose to do. I brushed the filets with melted butter and moistened the crumb mixture with it as well. The idea of the Italian seasoning with the delicate fish didn't appeal to me, so I chose to substitute fresh minced garlic, fresh chopped dill and parsley. I baked the fish in a shallow pan that I had drizzled with a little melted buttter. My filets were a little thicker, so I found that 20 minutes at 400 degrees was perfect. I love fish prepared this way and do so often. The addition of the corn meal was new for me, however, and I can't say that I even noticed it, so I would call it unnecessary. Served this with "Broccoli n Tomato Pasta," also from this site, and a tossed green salad. My idea of a perfect meal. Read More

Very delicious. My only suggestion is to season the fish itself before adding the breading on top. I used some lemon juice salt and pepper. Read More

Please notice that the description clearly states this is a "low-fat" recipe. Therefore, substituting mayo for the egg white truly changes an important factor here. Read More

Good recipe nothing too fancy - simple and easy to make. I made it with and without the egg white and my family did not notice a difference. This is a meal I'll make again. I did need to tent the fish at the end of the cooking time to prevent excessive browning of the breadcrumbs. Read More
