The Red Lobster restaurant is known for its signature cheddar biscuits, creamy clam chowder, and delicious seafood dishes of all types. This copycat recipe shows an easy way to re-create Red Lobster’s Nantucket Baked Cod recipe at home with items that you most likely already have in your pantry.
As nice as Red Lobster’s dishes are, they are also loaded in butter. This dish is slimmed down quite a bit but still has all of the flavor of the restaurant dish. At less than 200 calories a serving, it won’t hurt anyone’s dieting efforts!
The dish is so simple to do. Just combine the spices, sprinkle the cod with the melted butter, lemon zest and lemon juice, add a couple of tomato slices and a sprinkling of fresh parmesan cheese. What could be easier.
The fish does not need much butter and the lemon zest adds a nice tang. Just sprinkle with the easy mix of Kosher salt, cracked black pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.
Bake in a preheated 425º oven for about 8 minutes, then turn the grill to broil and cook for another 6-8 minutes or until the cheese and tomatoes begin to brown.
This delicious dish is ready in a flash. Perfect for busy weeknights when time is at a premium. No need to bring in Red Lobster take away. Make it at home!
