    I used Ling Cod and followed the recipe exactly. When I took it out of the oven the coating was a bit mushy so I put it in a very hot, lightly oiled pan and browned both sides. I served it with green beans and coconut rice. Delicious! Will make again.

    Basically pretty good! Enhanced the flavor with lemon pepper/salt mix. Tried to get get thickest cut I could find. As it got thinner it was less delicate. Would have tried it with Halibut except for the $24.99/# vs $9.99/# for cod. Maybe after stimulus 😁

    Cod will taste better on its own without the seasoning . Disappointed with the taste. Will never cook cod in this way again

    Big fail ..... the flour coating was just gummy not crispy at all. Maybe I’ll try again and leave out the flour and just bake it with the lemon butter sauce.

    Get ready to love fish again! This was so easy and fun to prepare and my family loved it to boot. Flaky and tasty cod along with steamed broccoli and jasmine rice. I seasoned the flour with lemon pepper seasoning which gave it nice kick. Thank you for this Monday night meal.

    This recipe was very bland. Nobody liked it and I followed the directions. I even air fried it to get that wet dough consistency to crisp up a little. So tasted bad.

    I used frozen cod and was not impressed with it. Now it could be because the fish was not fresh, but the taste overall was just meh.....

    I browned it in a skillet and finished it off in the oven. It was easy and delicious, but could have used some garlic.

    So easy and So good. In my opinion, it almost tastes like crab. I won’t make cod any other way.

    It didnt look as good as your photo but it was delicious! I paired it with some steamed brussels sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes. So flavorful that there was no need for anything like tartar sauce.

    The flavor was really good and this was a very easy dish to make. However, the fish needed to be baked longer. Took 45 minutes to an hour.
