Red Lobster Nantucket Baked Cod

Here's another Red Lobster selection that is a simple, healthy choice for your next kitchen-cloned meal. The menu described it as "A flaky white fish, baked with fresh tomatoes and Parmesan, served with rice." You'll get a little fat from the butter and just a bit from the Parmesan cheese, but at a total of 6 grams of fat per serving, this is still a very low-fat choice for lunch or dinner. Serve this dish with rice and some steamed veggies, and save the fat grams for dessert.

Nutrition Facts:
Serving Size - 2 fillets
Total Servings - 2
Fat per serving - 6g
Calories per serving - 370

Spice Blend
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
dash black pepper
dash cayenne pepper

1 1/2 pounds fresh cod fillet
1 tablespoon butter, melted
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 small tomatoes
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1. Combine the spices in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Cut the fish into 4 equal portions (2 per serving), and arrange the fillets in a 9x13-inch baking dish or pan.

3. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds. Brush the top of each fillet with butter, drizzle a little lemon juice on the fish, then sprinkle the spice blend evenly over the top of each fillet.

4. Arrange 2 to 3 tomato slices over the top of each fillet.

5. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over each tomato slice. Each slice should be at least 50 percent covered with the cheese, and it's okay for some of the cheese to fall on the fish.

6. Bake the fish, uncovered, for 8 minutes, then turn the oven to a high broil and continue to cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the cheese on the tomatoes begins to brown. Serve two pieces of fish per serving with rice on the side, if desired.

Serves 2.

Hubby and son loved it! We all cleaned our plates! I did add garlic just because everything is better with garlic! I know my men will request this frequently!

This recipe is super simple to make. The first time I made it, it was a little on the bland side but still good. Needed a little more umph. The next night I made it again and added garlic powder, minced garlic and when it came out of the oven a dash of lemon. OMG, it was so fantastic! It tasted better the next day for leftovers too!!!! You have to try this recipe out!!!!!

My husband hates fish. He is on the verge of being a diabetic so I am in search of healthy things he will eat. This was VERY easy and he LOVED it!!! Thank you!
Surprisingly Delicious!

This turned out quite well. I did use garlic butter, and also made a cheesy mixture of cream cheese, Romano, Parmesan and minced garlic & parsley to spread over the fish, then the tomatoes, and finally topped with more Parmesan. It was really delicious! So good that I'm making it again tonight! This is a real winner. Thanks so much!

Family loved. My 17 year old son said it tasted like crab from Red Lobster. Wow and this was so easy. Definitely make again.
Best Fish Recipe

Possibly the best thing I have ever ate! I use fire roasted diced tomatoes out of a can and let the fish soak in the extra juice. Delicious!
Fast and delicious

Made this for 9 people last night, it took no time at all and everyone loved it, even those of my kids who profess not to like fish. Highly recommended!
Great Healthy and Tasty

This cod came out very good. We used cut up grape tomatoes, they sweetened up nice. The only change I would make is reducing the liquid at the end to drizzle over the fish.

Used this recipe on Whitefish and it was excellent!

Wonderful! I used talapia instead of cod and was skimpy on the cayenne since we're not big on "hot". Hubby went back for seconds.

I tried this last night. Using Dover sole instead of cod. It was Fantastic. My wife said it was the best fish she's ever had. Add Italian seasonings and it's even better as a rub for a beef roast.

I've made this several times. It's SO easy and yummy! Just don't put too much cayenne in it like I accidentally did once or it kind of ruins it. Also, I use crushed canned tomatoes if I don't have fresh and it tastes fine.

This recipe is not only low-fat and healthy, it looks and tastes delicious! The instructions were easy to follow and perfect. I used cherry tomatoes, halved, and placed them all over the top of the fish, then placed the grated parmesan on top. It browned beautifully and looked really elegant. Tres bon!
