How to make Baked Wild Alaska Pacific Cod in Breadcrumbs
1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Grease two baking sheets with a little vegetable oil.
2) Beat the egg white with 2 tbsp of cold water until lightly foamy. Sprinkle the flour and breadcrumbs onto separate plates, seasoning the flour with salt and pepper.
3) Lightly coat the cod fillets in seasoned flour, then dip them into the egg white. Coat them in breadcrumbs, then arrange on the baking sheets.
4) Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Check that the fish is cooked – the flesh should be opaque and flake easily. Serve with lemon wedges.
Cook's tip: Roast some potato wedges in the oven at the same time as the fish, but remember that they will take about 45 minutes to cook.
