What to do when the fish dies and you can't release it.

Perfect Ten Baked Rock Cod

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 sleeve buttery round crackers (such as Ritz), crushed
2 tablespoons butter
1 pound thick-cut rock cod loin
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Place 2 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl; melt in microwave on high, about 30 seconds. Stir buttery round crackers into melted butter.
Place remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a 7x11-inch baking dish. Melt in the preheated oven, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove dish from oven.
Coat both sides of cod in melted butter in the baking dish.
Bake cod in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven; top with lemon juice, wine, and cracker mixture. Place back in oven and bake until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 10 more minutes.
Garnish baked cod with parsley and green onion. Serve with lemon wedges.
