Cheesy Stuffed Baked Cod

I managed to make a booboo again! I forgot to put the cheese on before the cracker crumb so put it on top instead. The dish was still delicious, but I think it would have been even better with the cheese next to the fish! It also called for Muenster cheese, but that doesn't exist here so I swapped it for cheddar. I served it with crushed new potatoes and a variety of veg.

Cheesy Stuffed Baked Cod (from A Family Feast)
(Serves 4)

4 cod or haddock fillets
salt and pepper
4 slices cheddar cheese
25 Ritz Crackers, crushed
juice half a lemon
zest  half a lemon
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tbsp chopped parsley
¼ tsp paprika
1/8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
8 tbsp butter, melted (1 stick)
125ml milk
½ lemon cut into four wedges
Preheat oven to 200C.
Spray a baking pan with cooking spray and place the fish fillets in the pan. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Place the slices of cheese evenly over the fish.
Combine the cracker crumbs with the lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic powder, pepper, parsley flakes, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and melted butter. Mix well.
Gently pile the cracker mixture over fish. Try to leave the stuffing loose and not packed down.
Pour the milk around fish but not over. Place the lemon wedges in the milk next to the fish.
Cover with a piece of parchment paper and then cover with foil, sealing tightly around the edges.
Bake covered for 15 mins, then remove the parchment and foil and bake uncovered for five more mins, or until it flakes apart with a fork.
