  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and lightly grease your 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Lay the cod fillets out in the baking dish. Season the fish with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the butter, oil, flour, garlic, paprika, cilantro, Dijon mustard and lemon juice. The flour is optional but it adds a nice crisp.
  4. Coat the top of each fillet with a generous spoonful of the butter mixture.
