    Excellent flavor but coating a little mushy
    definitely a keeper i used old bay (thats all i had no paprika) and it was to die for.

    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.

    awesome! I'll make this again!
    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.

    Moist and great buttery lemon taste

    I used smoked paprika instead of regular. We felt this recipe lacked flavor and the flour made a soft coating. We prefer a crunchy coating so would not make this recipe again.

    it was good, I'd add a little more lemon juice and take out on the oven 20 degrees early to fry so that you get a crispee finish
