Split a young codfish, remove bones, and cut into sections for individual servings. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and dip in melted butter. Then roll in a mixture of fine breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, and paprika. Place on an oven-proof platter and broil until tender, about 3 inches from the flame. Baste with melted butter.
