This baked fish is easy to make and busting with flavor. Fillets are seasoned with garlic pepper, then bathed in a spicy red pepper and horseradish sauce, topped with a Cajun breading, and baked until golden brown.

The cod was dry but this recipe gets 5 stars for the sauce--it should be a recipe on its own. I heated the extra sauce and served it with the fish and rice. It was very good on the rice as well. This sauce would be good on beef pork or chicken. Next time I'm going to put it on hamburgers. For the horseradish sauce I used a recipe from this site (by Carol46) replacing sour cream with plain lowfat yogurt. Read More

For those who commented on the sauce having too much of a horseradish taste I'm wondering if they used plain horseradish instead of the horseradish sauce as the recipe suggested. Anyway even with the additions of garlic and onion powder black pepper and a splash of fat free half and half I still found the sauce to be rather bland with very little flavor. Read More

This was delicious and I'm not a huge fish fan. I modified it a bit to use what I had on hand but I followed the "spirit" of the recipe. I made horsey sauce from scratch at home instead of using prepared. I also made a mock-cajun topping instead. The red pepper sauce is excellent. I added about a TBSP of lemon juice and a little salt to bring out the flavors more. Yum. I'll probably just use crushed ritz crackers on top next time for simplicity and so other flavors don't compete with the flavor of the sauce. Read More

Loved this recipe! It made a nice creamy sauce. I used crumbled Ritz crackers instead to done down the heat and didn't use the other seasoning. The sauce was so good that I even had some on top of the crackers. It was a great way to have fish - something different than the usual grill or steamed versions. Read More

WAY too much horseradish--and we LOVE horseradish so that says something. Sauce completely overwhelms the cod. Won't make this again... Read More

I used fresh peppers (red and orange) and roasted them on the stove. It was very good but next time I will add a dash or two of salt. I put the cajun mix in my processor until crumbled. It definately added a good punch and flavor. As others have said the horseradish sauce that I got from this site was wonderful and I will use it by itself for future prime rib etc. Read More

I really enjoyed enjoyed this recipe. It is very tasty (dependent entirely on how you make your sauce). The roasted red pepper gives it a great taste. be careful as the horseradish can overwhelm the roasted red pepper if you're not careful. You want just a hint of the horseradish... unless of course you are a horseradish fanatic. Read More

Delicious! Thank you for this recipe! I used the horseradish sauce recipe on this site and it was easy to make and so-oo good. My only problem was in finding cajun snack - couldn't find at our grocer so I used Kashi TLC vegetable crackers and added cajun seasoning. Our grocer had swai on sale so I used it in place of the cod. You'd ever know the difference. My husband really enjoyed this - I will defintely make again. Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

i didn't really like this at all. Although it;s saving grace was the roasted red pepper sauce. I would try make it again without the cajun snack food coating and see what I think. Read More
