Oven-Fried Fish and Parmesan Oven Wedges

Oven Fried Fish and Chips

Panko coated cod baked until golden brown and flaky along side Parmesan oven fries and the easiest lemon tartar sauce you will ever make. This recipe is a shoe-in for those times when you want fish and chips on the fly without all the mess of frying.

The potato wedges are lightly coated with olive oil, salt and pepper, baked until golden brown then tossed with Parmesan cheese and parsley. A little upgrade from the traditional chips.

I use the same no-fail method on the fish as I do on my chicken. I lightly coat it with mayonnaise followed by  panko crumbs that have been lightly toasted first in a dry skillet to make sure they come out of the oven golden brown and crunchy. The mayonnaise helps the fish stay moist and succulent just like it does with chicken.

The crunchy crust with the flaky, tender white fish underneath paired with the brightness and richness of the tartar sauce and the hot, salty, cheesy fries is every bit as satisfying as their deep-fried counterparts. Oven-fried perfection.

Oven-Fried Fish and Parmesan Oven Wedges

Panko coated cod baked until golden brown and flaky along side Parmesan oven fries and the easiest lemon tartar sauce you will ever make.


1 + 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 - 2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for greasing pans
coarse salt and fresh black pepper
1 cup panko crumbs
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 pound cod fish
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 - 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 heaping teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
Tartar sauce:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 - 3 tablespoons dill pickle relish or chopped dill pickles
zest of one lemon
malt vinegar, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a large cookie sheet.
  2. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into long 1-inch wide wedges. Place on cookie sheet and drizzle with oil. Toss with your hands then spread out on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse salt and black pepper. Bake about 30 - 35 minutes until golden.
  3. Meanwhile set to work on your fish:
  4. Set a cast iron skillet or saute pan over medium heat and toast the panko crumbs, stirring often until lightly golden. Remove to a shallow bowl and allow to cool. Mix in the seasoned bread crumbs.
  5. Lightly grease a large roasting pan with oil.
  6. Use a pastry brush to coat the tops and sides of the fish with a thin layer of mayonnaise, season them with salt and pepper then coat with the panko crumbs patting on with your hands. I only coat the top and sides leaving the bottom plain. Set the fish in the pan and sprinkle some of the remaining crumbs over top.
  7. Bake 12 - 20 minutes depending on the size of your fish - check the middle - the fish should be white and not translucent in the center.
  8. Meanwhile make the tartar sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, dill pickles and lemon together in a small bowl.
  9. When the potatoes are cooked toss with parmesan and parsley.
  10. Serve with tartar sauce and malt vinegar for the fries, if desired.

    I don’t really crave “chips” all that often but yours look perfect! Just the right amount of brown crispy bits and soft insides.

    I love the idea of oven-fried fish and chips –less clean-ups for me, yay!!! Not to mention healthier too. Looks absolutely delicious Reeni! I can go for a big plate of this. :) Have a great weekend!

    Wow the fish looks delicious. I always thought frying in the oven would have dried up crumbs not that satisfaction that you get from the deep fried ones, but these looks lovely :)

    I don’t usually eat fish, but these photos and your description make me wonder if I should reconsider! The rest of my family will enjoy this without any thinking necessary. I am sold on your mayonnaise coating method after eating several of your chicken recipes. :) So I guess this fish recipe will be another winner. :)

    This looks amazing! I love that it is all baked. We have started a month ago baking our fries for healthier eating. I am sure this will be a ruge hit at home.

    Have a nice weekend Reeni :)
