Why This Recipe Works
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. When we baked the fish in a very hot oven, the coating crisped up nicely, and the fish cooked quickly without drying out.
