Lemon Parmesan Baked Fish

Time: 35 minutes

The railways system in Canada was such a big part of our history and development. Whenever I see a train going through the mountains or hear its whistle, I get a nostalgic feeling… So today when typing up this recipe, which is a comfort food for us, this song, form my childhood, came to mind. I’ve paired them and I hope you enjoy them both and have time to reflect on something nostalgic.

Music Selection: Joan Baez – 500 Miles


¾ cup fresh grated parmesan

½ lemon, zest

2 Tbsp dried parsley

½ tsp garlic powder

1 ¼ tsp paprika

¼ cup butter, melted

1 ½ lbs fresh cod or sole


Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with spray or olive oil.

In a large flat container, mix the parmesan, garlic, paprika, parsley and lemon zest. Mix well.

Rinse the fish in cold water and then pat it dry with paper towels.

In another large flat container, pour the melted butter. Take a piece of fish, dip it in the butter, then roll it in the parmesan mix. Place on greased baking sheet. Continue until all fish is coated. Place the fish in a single layer. Place in oven for 15  minutes, or until fish will flake easily.

Serve with additional fresh lemon to squeeze over the fish! Serve with Creamy Brie, Blue Cheese & Tomato Pasta.
