Ingredients

  • 1 bag ButcherBox Wild-Caught Panko Breaded Alaskan Cod
  • 1 bag frozen fries
  • lemon wedges for serving
  • tartar sauce for dipping

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper for the fries, and lightly grease another tray for the cod. 
  • Spread the french fries in a single layer on their tray. Bake according to the package instructions, usually about 15-20 minutes, until they are golden and crispy. Halfway through, give them a shake or a turn for even cooking.
  • While the fries are cooking, place the breaded cod on the prepared tray. Bake for 16-20 minutes, flipping halfway through. The cod should be golden and crispy on the outside, and flaky on the inside. Ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Arrange the crispy cod and golden fries on a plate. Serve with lemon wedges and a bowl of tartar sauce on the side for that authentic Fish & Chips experience.

Notes

Cook Your Cod to Perfection
Achieving the perfect crispy, flaky cod is easier than you might think, especially with ButcherBox’s Wild Caught Panko Breaded Alaskan Cod. Here’s how to get that ideal texture and taste:
  1. Oven Baking: Preheat your oven to 425°F. Arrange the cod fillets on a baking sheet and lightly drizzle them with oil. This helps in getting that golden-brown crispness while maintaining the fish’s natural moisture. Bake for 16-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them to ensure they don’t overcook – you’re looking for a golden crust and a flaky interior.
  2. Air Frying: For those who prefer a quicker method or a lighter touch, air frying is an excellent option. Set your air fryer to 390°F. Place the cod fillets inside, ensuring they’re not overcrowded to allow for even cooking. Air fry them for 8-10 minutes until they’re beautifully crisp. This method is great for retaining the delicate flavor of the cod while achieving a delightful crunch.
