Easy Baked Cod – Downshiftology

I call this Easy Baked Cod, but the original recipe calls it Best Baked Cod. I have to say that it’s both the BEST and the EASIEST cod that I’ve ever made! I found this recipe from Lisa over at Downshiftology. You can learn more about Lisa here. What I seem to be finding more and more is that people who create blogs are in some kind of flux. They may be leaving a job, suffering from burnout, or a mix of things and they are looking for a creative outlet. Reading about Lisa, I find that this is also in part what happened with her, and I am so glad that she chose this outlet to share with everyone. Her recipes are wonderful and her blog is very helpful, with lots of great tips to help us get in and out of the kitchen. I’m really looking forward to learning more about her, and check out some more of these wonderful recipes!!

This is one of the easiest recipes I’ve thrown together, and the cod came out perfect, full of flavor, very flaky and delicious. Let’s jump right in!

Ingredients

  • 4 6-ounce cod fillets
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, chives, thyme or other herb (I used chives)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400⁰ F/200⁰ C.

Slice the lemon, press the garlic and chop your herbs.

In a small bowl, mix together the butter, olive oil, garlic, chives, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Lay one slice of lemon for each filet onto your stone or baking pan.  Place one filet on top of each lemon, then spread the butter mixture on top of each filet. Place one more lemon slice on top of filet and butter mixture.

Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes, or until the cod reaches 145⁰ F/63⁰ C.  Remove from oven, pour juices over cod prior to serving.

That’s it! This recipe was super easy to put together, and was very delicious. Please let me know if you give this a try!
