  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x



4 6-oz cod fillets

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

1/4 cup sliced almonds

1 egg, beaten well

1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Chives, for service

Salt, to taste


  1. To begin, preheat oven to 400℉. Prepare baking tray with a sheet of parchment paper. Mix parmesan cheese, sliced almonds, sweet paprika and garlic powder in a small bowl. 
  2. Dry cod fillets well with paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt. Dip the top of each cod fillet into the beaten egg, then lay the fish fillet (egg side up) on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the top of the fish fillets with a solid coating of the almond parmesan mixture.
  3. Bake the fish for 10-12 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the fish is baked through. 

  4. Garnish with chives and lemon wedges. 


If you're out of cod, any flaky white fish such as hake, mahi mahi, grouper, haddock and even tilapia or catfish, will take well to this savory topping.
