Pretzel Crumbed Cod

    45 minutes

    The pretzels add a great crunchy coating that sticks to the fish when frying. The flavour is excellent and these fillets serve well alone or as a fish sandwich.

    This was VERY good! I pan fried it in a deep skillet, 5 minutes per side, and it came out perfectly. I was worried the larger pieces of pretzel wouldn't stay on, but they did. The coating was wonderfully crunchy. Will make again!  -  25 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Followed the recipe, except used talapia instead of cod & boy where these good! Thought the seasoning was perfect. Was worried that they may fry too long because they got fairly dark, but, came out nice and crunchy & perfect--not dry. I don't know if it makes a huge difference but, after I egg/coated the fish, I let them rest for about 5-10min. before frying--I just think they set up better. Served w/ tarter sauce.  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a great way to coat fish!! It turned out great! All I had to do was tell my kids that it had pretzels on it and they were all for it! I added a bit more seasoning and ended up crushing a little more than I had initially. I thought that it was super!  -  01 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
