Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a casserole dish and set aside.
Lightly season the codfish on both sides with Essence and place in the prepared dish, skin side down.
In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, butter, parsley, mustard, and garlic, and mix well. Add the cheese and mix well. Place on the fish, patting down to make a crust. Pour the cream over the fish and bake until the fish is cooked through, golden brown and the cheese is bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve.
