- You will add cod fillets on top of the onions and parsley and spread the topping evenly over the fish
- Bake until a crispy finish at 400 F. for 20 minutes!

My local fish market was out of their cod, so I used Lemon Sole. This was delicious! The lemon/wine sauce was so tasty and the fish was tender and flakey. This is definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I am happy you enjoyed the Lemon Sole, Kim!
I’ve made this a number of times. My son is not a “white fish” lover … except in this case! Great recipe!
That’s wonderful to hear!
