Crispy Panko-Crusted Cod with Lemon Dill Sauce

Healthy Fact of the Day

Cod is an excellent source of lean protein and is rich in essential nutrients like vitamin B12, selenium, and phosphorus. The panko breadcrumb crust adds a satisfying crunch, while the tangy lemon dill sauce provides a fresh and flavorful accompaniment without adding excessive calories or fat.

Ingredients

 

  • 4 cod fillets (6-8 oz each)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil or cooking spray for frying

For the Lemon Dill Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


 

Instructions

  1. Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels and season them with salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Set up three shallow dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with panko breadcrumbs mixed with garlic powder and paprika.

  3. Dredge the cod fillets in the flour, dip them in the beaten eggs, and then coat them evenly with the seasoned panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the crumbs.

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add enough olive oil or cooking spray to lightly coat the bottom.

  5. Cook the breaded cod fillets for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Adjust the heat as needed to prevent burning.

  6. Transfer the cooked cod fillets to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

For the Lemon Dill Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, chopped dill, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Serve the crispy panko-crusted cod hot, with the lemon dill sauce on the side for drizzling or dipping.
