Lemon-Butter Baked Cod

I haven’t shared a cod recipe yet so I’m
starting with a favorite, very easy, and yummy 
one. Anything covered with lemon and butter 
is already going to be delicious. 
This is such a simple little oven fish dinner. 
It’s another quick one for your menu rotation.
  Cod is a very mild firm white fish with large 
flakes. It has just a hint of a “lobster” quality. 
 I use my ever-handy pie dishes; one with the 
butter-lemon mixture and another with the 
flour and seasonings. 
 Coat the fish pieces in the melted butter.
 Then coat with the flour. 
 Place in a pan and drizzle on the remaining 
butter mixture. Sprinkle with a bit of paprika. 
 Bake at 350º for about 12-15 minutes.
 It’s done when golden and just begins to flake.
 Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.
Serve with lemon wedges.
