Trader Joe`s Oven Ready Breaded Cod Fillets

2 years ago

Every once in a while I`m in the mood for fish. I`m not a seafood buff but I do like an occasional piece of fried fish. Since I don`t like having fried foods very often, I typically resort to the frozen fish department in Trader Joe`s to see what might be available. One afternoon I spotted the Trader Joe`s Oven Ready Breaded Cod Fillets and decided to give them a shot.

Usually I go for haddock because I`m a white fish kind of gal, but since I have had fried cod in the past I figured eh, why not? The fillets are pretty decent in size and cooking is a breeze. All I do is spray a little non-stick spray in a baking pan, place my fish in the pan and top the fillets with a spray of non-stick cooking spray. I pop them into the oven and bake per package directions and once done they come out cooked to perfection with a nice crunchy crust. I definitely don`t miss the extra frying with this because it gives it that nice crunch with fried fish dishes.

The fish is nice and flakey without that fish taste. It`s very mild and pairs perfectly with a little homemade tartar sauce on the side. The one downside I found was that the skin was on some fillets, which made the picky eater in me shudder and pick apart the fish - giving the skinned pieces of fish to my dogs. That alone was a downer because it would be a perfect fish dish for the picky fish eaters. Although, if you can get past the skin in a fillet here or there - these are quite good and filling.

A 5.3 oz serving (typically 2 fillets) is 280 calories or 7 points plus values.
