Easy Baked Cod & Homemade Tartar Sauce

I came across an easy recipe for baked cod and decided to give it a try.  It was quite tasty, but I made a few simple additions and it was even better.


4 cod filets, thawed
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
15 Ritz crackers
1 tsp Penzy's Northwoods seasoning


  • Sprinkle flour onto a small plate.
  • Mix eggs and milk and pour into a shallow bowl.
  • Crush Ritz crackers and combine with Northwoods seasoning.  Spread onto a small plate.
  • Pat dry each cod fillet.  One fillet at a time, press into flour to coat well, then drench into egg/milk mixture and then press into crushed crackers to coat well.  Continue with other fillets.
  • Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until they flake easily with a fork.

I also recently made homemade tartar sauce which was way better than store bought.  The only downside is that it only keeps for 3 days, so modify as needed to make less.

1 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp pickle relish (or finely chopped pickles)
1 tbsp minced onion
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper

Mix mayo, pickles and minced onion together in a small bowl. Add lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
