If you have 65 minutes to spare and are in the mood for a baked seafood dish, then look no further. This meal is perfect for the summer and takes advantage of easily accessible ingredients that together will create a creamy and well-seasoned mixture that will infuse itself into the delicate meat of the cod. Once breaded and baked, the rich and crispy texture of the fish will pair well with a light salad.

I used fresh cod steaks and velveeta cheese on this recipe and it was beyond 5 stars. The carrots were tender and it had a mild garlic taste. A dish I will more than likely make again.
