Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375oF.  Spray a small baking pan with non-stick spray, or brush liberally with olive oil.
  • Place the roasted garlic in the bowl of a food processor and process briefly to break up the cloves.  Add the cheese and process until evenly blended with the garlic.  Add the breadcrumbs and process once more until the mixture is blended. Use a rubber spatula to clean the sides of the bowl and process once more, very briefly, until mixture is homogenous and moist.

  • Pat dry the cod fillets using a paper towel, then season both sides of each portion with salt and black pepper.  Pack a layer of crust onto one side of each fillet (this will take about 2 Tbsp. crust mixture per fillet side).  Place fillets crust down on the baking sheet; pack additional crust on the top side of each portion.

CHEF’S NOTE:  I really love Barbara’s recipe; it is simple, packed with flavor, and has amazing plate appeal.  Having some extra roasted garlic on hand, I tried one more batch using panko breadcrumbs and a bit of paprika to facilitate browning.  I also backed off a bit on the garlic quantity to satisfy more timid paletes.
