  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in lemon juice, salt, pepper, parsley flakes, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir about 10 minutes, until thickened.
  3. Arrange cod fillets in a single layer on a medium baking sheet. Cover with 1/2 the butter mixture, and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is easily flaked with a fork. Pour the remaining butter mixture over the fish to serve.

Very good flavor! I used pollock filets, which were fairly thin. But so many reviewers recommended a longer cooking time, that I cooked them for 30 minutes just to be sure. I served this with a ...

I wrapped salmon, topped with this sauce, in foil packets and baked them. I omitted the lemon pepper and placed lemon slices on top of the fish instead. It was delicious! My husband is picky abo...

I'm rating this four stars rather than five as the amount of lemon pepper and lemon called for seems overbearing. I toned them both down considerably, and used fresh parsley rather than dried. I...

LOVED this recipe. Didn't have lemon-pepper on hand so I omittted it and am glad I did as I think it would have "ruined" the fresh taste it had. This is quick, easy and really favorful. For the ...

This is a tasty, easy recipe. I made it easier by using 3 tbs. bottled lemon juice instead of squeezing the lemon, using a garlic press instead of mincing the garlic, and using a covered casser...
