This recipe for cornflake cod is really easy to make and the coating gives the fish a wonderful crunch. The fish is first dipped into beaten egg white and this is to give the cornflake mixture something to stick to. Because you are cooking this at a high temperature, the total cooking time for this will only be about eight minutes so keep an eye on the fish in the oven. You want the fish to cook fast and the cornflakes to be golden brown rather than burnt. Have the cornflakes whole, coarsely broken or ground into crumbs, as you like. It just depends on what kind of texture you prefer.

Serve this flavorful baked cod recipe with fries or potato salad. It is also nice with a salad or some veggies on the side; broccoli, green beans, coleslaw, mushrooms or onion rings would all work. Corn on the cob is good with a lot of easy fish recipes, but remember that this one already contains corn in the form of cornflakes, so you might prefer something else.

You will find that both adults and kids enjoy this tasty fish recipe and you will love it too, because it is so easy to prepare. You probably have most, or all, of the ingredients in the pantry, so it should just be a case of getting everything together, deciding which side dish or side dishes to make with this baked fish recipe, and making the recipe. You can substitute tilapia, grouper, haddock, or another kind of fish if you prefer, although the flakiness of cod does make it a very good choice. If you use thicker filets, they might take longer to cook.

Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone?
