  • 2 lbs. cod fillets
  • 1/3 cup real mayonnaise not miracle whip
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmigianno Regianno cheese no pre-grated cheese please!
  • 2 tablespoons each chopped fresh parsley and basil
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Place fish fillets onto the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir mayonnaise together with cheese, fresh herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined. Spread evenly over the top of the fillets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until fish starts looking opaque and will flake. Switch oven to broiler and brown the tops of the fish until lightly golden. Remove from oven, cool 3-5 minutes and serve.
