Ritz Cracker Cod


6-8 oz. fillets of baby cod
1 cup milk
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 lb. melted butter
1/4 lb. Ritz crackers, finely crushed
Salt and pepper to taste


Marinate baby cod in milk, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, olive oil and paprika for 2 hours ( the longer the better).

Remove from marinade and dip each fillet into cracker crumbs. Cover all surfaces well.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place fillets in buttered baking pan.

Drizzle with melted butter.

Pour white wine into pan, being sure not to drizzle directly onto fish.

Bake until flaky, approximately 10 minutes. Do not overcook. Place under broiler for a few minutes to finish and give color.

Serves 6.

Tip: Serve with boiled or roasted new potatoes, a green vegetable, a wedge of lemon, and a dozen Parker House Rolls.
