Cod fillets coated with soft bread crumbs, grated cheese and chopped parsley and basil leaves will taste perfect with a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice.


  • 800 g fillet of cod
  • 1 Vegeta Grill marinade with beer 100 g
  • 125 g panko crumbs
  • 3 tbsp Grana Padano cheese, grated
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 1 tsp Podravka garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp basil, chopped
  • 1 lemon


  1. 1.
    Drizzle the cod fillets with Vegeta marinade and allow to rest for about 30 minutes.
  2. 2.
    Combine panko bread crumbs with grated cheese, chopped parsley, basil and granulated garlic, and stir well to mix. Add olive oil and mix to blend.
  3. 3.
    Place a fillet of cod in the bread crumb mixture and coat it well.
  4. 4.
    Fry the coated fillets in a hot griddle pan on both sides until golden brown.


Serve the cod fillets garnished with lemon slices and a side of your choice.


You can fry whole fish in this fashion. Make 2 or 3 diagonal incisions on each side before marinating for the fish to absorb all the aromas into a nicely rounded flavour.
