This was a super easy dinner to make, and no dish to clean made it a hit with me! I cooked this on the grill in the packets so I didn't even heat up the house. They took less time to grill. Plan on 12 to 18 minutes of cooking time, depending on the thickness of your cod. I love cod for its mild, delicate flavor. I was not a huge fan of the garlic in this recipe or I would have given it 5 stars. Otherwise, a great dinner! Thanks!-16 Apr 2013

Healthy Baked Lemon Garlic Cod

When you're looking for an easy and healthy dinner idea, you can't go wrong with this baked lemon garlic cod recipe. It's a great weeknight dish, but don't count it out for entertaining because it's definitely impressive enough for your most discriminating company.

Cod is a relatively mild-tasting fish, making it a good choice for the fish-averse (including kids). It pairs well with and actually takes on the flavors of the ingredients you add to it. Here, a simple approach is used: A drizzle of lemon juice, some crushed garlic, and olive oil are cooked along with a sliver of butter and some fresh chopped parsley to make a bright and flavorful sauce that is spooned over boneless, skinless cod portions before baking. This heart-healthy fish dish is ready in about 20 minutes.

Serve with a green salad with a vinaigrette or low-fat dressing, or steamed veggies or a vinegar-and-oil coleslaw. Carbs are perfectly fine as a side dish as long as they are whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, millet, or barley.

How To Make The Perfect Baked Cod

Pan searing is one way to achieve that beautiful crust. But I find that baking it in the oven is hands down the most foolproof method. Here’s how to make it.

  1. Make the garlic herb butter. Stir the topping ingredients together.
  2. Coat the fish. Smear the garlic herb butter on the cod filets.
  3. Bake the fish. Once the fish is flaky, it’s ready to serve.

Recipe FAQs

The exact baking time depends on the thickness of your fillet pieces.

When I have quite thick fish, I’ll bake it for around 20 minutes. Thinner pieces will be done after 10-15 minutes.

You can also check with an instant-read thermometer to make sure you’re not eating undercooked fish.

You can tell your cod is cooked when it becomes opaque and flakes easily.

The internal temperature for cod should reach 145°F at the thickest part to be safe (source).

Blackened Cod With White Sauce

You haven’t had cod until you’ve had blackened cod! This dish is mild on a fishy scale but is a little spicy with a great grilled flavor and an awesome sauce. I have NEVER been a fan of tartar sauce though, so please don’t call my sauce that ha. It’s more like a half aioli, half tarter, so let’s just call it a white sauce.

For the cod… use good, fresh cod and not frozen cod. Once frozen, cod likes to fall apart and is hard to handle. Make sure you dry your cod very well with several paper towels and allow it to sit at room temperature for roughly 30 mins before cooking. If you’ve had blackened cod before, you’ve probably had something saltier than it would if seasoning with Dan-O’s, so add a little salt… but be careful because cod really takes salt in a lot! Don’t overdo it.

For the sauce, you could go straight mayo, but if you’re like me you like sour cream and want to do half and half. I found spicy-sweet pickles are the best for this sauce. It’s great to use fresh, grated garlic but I won’t say anything if you use pre-minced garlic. Remember, it’s a white sauce and not tarter!

This Blackened Cod With White Sauce recipe only takes about 20 minutes to make, but your guests don’t have to know that. This is a real crowd pleaser and is Dan Good!

How to cook Cod (Pan Fry)

I’m into easy pan frying partially because I’m lazy. But more importantly, pan frying yields that deliciously browned exterior on both sides of the fish. Baking or steaming won’t accomplish that same golden “crust.”

Pro Tips for pan frying cod:

  • Let fish sit at room temp in a colander to drain any excess water, particularly if your fish was previously frozen. Do this while you’re preparing the rest of the ingredients this allows time for the fish to get closer to room temperature.
  • Always thoroughly pat dry fish fillets to further remove as much moisture as you can. Yes, your roll of paper towels will dwindle a bit, but this step is essential to ensuring the fish cooks correctly.
  • Use enough olive oil to coat bottom of pan get that oil super hot prior to adding fish fillets.
  • Cook 2 fillets at a time (unless your pan is giant and can cook 4 fillets without crowding) and cook with lid ajar to allow steam to escape. Otherwise, the cod will be steamed rather than browned.
  • Use a thin but wide metal spatula to gently flip the fish to brown the other side. No small or flimsy tools – it’s a sad minute when a nice fish fillet breaks apart.

Hy-Vee Recipes and Ideas

Create a flavorful breading for the cod out of bread crumbs, herbs, citrus, and spices. Then, place it on a sheet pan to bake alongside the vegetables for an easy dinner.
