How do you cook fresh cod?

Answer

Fresh cod can be cooked by steaming, frying, baking or broiling it. Like halibut, red snapper, sea bass and tilapia, cod should be cooked to an internal temperature of between 130 and 135 degrees F to ensure harmful bacteria are destroyed.

Baking or broiling is probably the easiest method for cooking cod and takes between 20 to 25 minutes. For added texture and taste when baking, boiling or panfrying cod, dredge each piece of fish in a seasoned coating before cooking. Lining the baking pan with a sheet of aluminum foil reduces the mess from the coating.

To make a seasoned coating, begin with all-purpose flour, breadcrumbs or fish fry. Fish fry works best when frying in a deep fryer or pan, while flour creates a light breading that crisps nicely in the oven.

Mix desired dry seasonings into the flour for taste. A basic recipe can include some salt and pepper. Italian seasonings, curry, or parmesan will add a unique flavor.

Dip the fish pieces into a liquid before coating with the flour mixture.Use a mixture of butter and lemon, milk or eggs. Place the cod on a shallow pan, and bake at around 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the fish is easily flaked with a fork.
