Sharing is caring!

This recipe for baked cod is one of the easiest ones I know. Cod fillets are covered with a delicious herbed bread crumb crust and baked in the oven. Serve with rice.


  • 4 (4 ounce) cod fillets
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ½ fish bouillon cube
  • ¾ cup dry bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup butter, cut into small chunks
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lay cod fillets in a baking dish and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Combine water and fish bouillon cube in a bowl. Stir to combine and pour over cod.

Mix bread crumbs, butter, parsley, dill, tarragon, salt, and pepper in a bowl with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over cod.

Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork and the crust is golden and crunchy, about 20 minutes.
