  • 2 pounds fresh or frozen skinless cod fillets, 3/4- to 1-inch thick

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 8 wedges Lemon wedges and/or fresh parsley sprigs


  1. Preheat broiler. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, combine paprika and seasoned salt. Sprinkle paprika mixture over both sides of each fish fillet. Measure thickness of fish.

  2. Place fish on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and/or parsley sprigs. Makes 8 servings.

  3. Microwave directions: Prepare as directed through Step 1. In a microwave-safe 2-quart square baking dish, arrange fish in a single layer (fish may be tight in the dish but do not overlap). Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 5 to 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning dish once halfway through cooking if necessary. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and/or parsley sprigs.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
