Cod’s mild flavor gets a boost from a crunchy, nutty breadcrumb crust. If you don’t have pistachios, you can substitute other nuts, just be sure to pick meaty, flavorful nuts, like walnuts or pecans.
Steamed green beans and red potatoes or brown rice are great accompaniments.
Whether using traditional or loin fillets, the doneness test is the same: The flakes will separate easily, and the fish will be opaque.

I love this approach to baked fish. I often make it with halibut and use hazelnuts, which I toast before beginning the recipe, instead of pistachios. Almost any herb is good in the topping, but rosemary is our favorite.
Outstanding! Great flavor and it has a restaurant-quality presentation. Takes no time at all to prepare and cook, so you get a big bang for your buck.
QUICK - easy - tasty. "Rich" food (makes you feel satiated quickly) consequently, make a light side dish.
Crowd pleasing recipe. Everyone at the dinner table loved it, even the kids. I increased the breadcrumbs to 1 cup and added minced garlic cloves and lemon zest to the nut mixture. And instead of dipping the fish into the mixture, I placed the fillets on the baking sheet, spread each with 1 T of mustard, piled on the nut mixture, divided evenly, then pressed lightly to help it stick. It's easier to do it that way. My mom, who doesn't like baked fish, is still raving about this recipe.
