How to make  baked Panko cod

For seasoned breadcrumbs:  Take Panko crumbs, chilli flakes, salt, garlic powder, lemon zest and chopped parsley in a bowl.

Mix all the seasoning ingredients with the Panko crumbs until well combined. (If you don't have Panko crumbs, regular breadcrumbs can be used, but then the topping won't be as crunchy.

Place the cod fillets on a baking tray. Coat the top surface of the fillets with wholegrain mustard, dividing equally among the fillets.

Take handfuls of the seasoned Panko mixture and spread on each fish fillet evenly. Press the mixture carefully so it sticks to the mustard.

Spray the remaining oil (from marinating the cod fillets) on the crust and bake in the oven for 15  to 20 minutes.
