Fresh tomato slices and a buttery topping jazz up plain fish fillets in this easy oven entree from Kathleen Taugher of East Troy, Wisconsin. The tempting treatment helps keep the cod moist and flavorful.


  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 pounds cod fillets
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced

  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. In a bowl, combine the water and lemon juice. Add fish; soak for 5 minutes. Drain and place fish in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with pepper. Layer with onion, tomatoes and green pepper. Combine the remaining ingredients; sprinkle over top.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
