simple midweek baked cod

May 30, 2013 § 45 Comments

An easy baked cod recipe.  I made this fish on a evening after a long day at work and it was perfect.  I realize how important a simple midweek dinner recipe is when I get home ready to drop.  These cod filets went together easily.  I served them with dill mashed potatoes and an arugula salad.

I n g r e d i e n t s

  • 4 cod fish filets
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt
  • 1 lemon, sliced thinly into rounds
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 12 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • several sprigs of thyme

M e t h o d

Preheat oven to 400°F.   Lay out 4 large pieces of parchment paper on your counter.  Coat both sides of your fish with panko bread crumbs, sprinkle with salt and place one filet on each piece of parchment paper.  Place a few lemon slices onto fish, a sprig or two of thyme, 3 smashed garlic cloves and drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil on each.  Close up the parchment by meeting the tops together and rolling them down.  Fold the end underneath to seal.  Place the fish in a baking dish and bake for approximately 20 minutes.  You may check one by carefully unfolding to make sure it is done and seal it up again.

dill mashed potatoes

I n g r e d i e n t s

  • 3 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • handful of fresh dill, stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • salt / pepper to taste

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  Add diced potatoes and fresh dill.  Boil until potatoes are fork tender, approximately 10 minutes.  Drain and return to the pot over a medium low heat and allow the additional water to steam out.  Turn off the heat,  add butter and smash with a fork.  Season with salt and pepper according to your liking.

Serves 4.
