Ritz Cracker Cod

Ritz crackers hold a special place in the pantheon of crackers. Golden, buttery, slightly salty, crisp but yielding, and addictive. You could eat sleeve after sleeve and still want more…

Cod on the other hand isn’t a riot of flavors, but it has its own advantages. Flaky, tender, and moist, its a perfect vehicle for more complex flavors.

So, do what a good New Englander would do, and combine. Crushed up buttery crackers, gussied up with more butter and herbs go a top a perfectly cooked piece of fish. Nice
