We wanted our Baked Cod with Crunchy Lemon-Herb Topping recipe to yield tender, flaky, flavorful fish covered with crispy, crunchy bread crumbs. For the crispest coating, we used crushed Ritz crackers glued to the fish with mayonnaise flavored with garlic, lemon juice, and lemon zest.

Haddock, halibut, or bluefish fillets are good alternatives to cod. If some of the fish pieces are very thin, fold them in half to make thicker pieces. If you like, substitute dill or basil for the parsley.
