Ramen-Wrapped Cod with Chopped Salad

Jazz up a fish dinner by sprinkling with cajun seasoning and wrapping it in ramen. Ready in about 40 minutes, this cod recipe is a perfect weeknight option.

Total Time:
40 mins


  • 2 6 ounce fresh or frozen cod fillets or skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 3 ounce package ramen noodles (any flavor)

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning or barbecue spice

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 4 cup coarsely chopped iceberg or romaine lettuce

  • ½ cucumber, coarsely chopped

  • 1 large tomato, coarsely chopped

  • ¼ cup ranch salad dressing


  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Prepare ramen noodles according to package directions, omitting the seasoning packet (discard or reserve for another use); drain. Cool noodles slightly and toss with beaten egg.

  2. Split cod fillets in half lengthwise. Sprinkle fillet halves with 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dip fillets in flour to coat. Remove noodles from egg, a few at a time, and wind around fillets to cover.

  3. In a large skillet heat oil and butter over medium heat. Add fillets; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and crisp and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork (or cook chicken to 165°F).

  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the remaining four ingredients and the remaining 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning. Toss to coat. Serve cod with salad.
