Baked cod fish is one of my family’s favorite dishes that I make. Despite the weather warming up rather quickly, this RO*TEL Topped Baked Cod take about 20 minutes to bake, and produce some yummy results! Paired with some sweet pottoes and veggies, and you have one fiesta-worthy dinner idea!
Cod is a very mild fish that can easily become flavorless without the right flavor-enhancing ingredients. Thankfully, the combination of spiced bread crumbs and RO*TEL Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies I used is perfect. It produced the perfect balance of BOLD flavor all without being overly spicy. In fact my 7 year old even requested an extra dollop of RO*TEL on her fish.
If you were to take a peek into my pantry, you would notice that I always love to have a can or two of RO*TEL on hand for cooking. This product is mega versatile and can kick up the flavor on pretty much any dish. I love it with cheese, in dips, on top of proteins like fish, and even in omelets. No matter what day of the week it is, RO*TEL will help you put a spicy spin on your favorite dish.
During the summer time our family tend to eat more wild caught fish. For this particular recipe I was unable to get wild-caught code because my local store sold out due to Mother’s Day. Wild-caught frozen cod worked just as well but you really need to pat the excess moisture out of each filet.
For the fish breading, I used Italian Bread crumbs to save time, and a pad of unsalted butter for each piece of fish. I went with unsalted to compensate for the salt in the pre-made bread crumbs. This recipe is so easy to make because it does not require many steps of tons of ingredients. These are the kinds of meals that do well in my home because I love fresh and easy!
You can find RO*TEL at Walmart in the canned tomato isle.
