Cod is one of my favorite fish. This recipe couldn't be easier or faster, and because what you're adding doesn't overwhelm the delicate, mild taste of the cod, it's delicious.

15 minutes from prep to serve. Some buttered rice with some grated parmigiano, and a salad or steamed green beans or broccoli with olive oil and lemon juice, and you're done.

  • 1 lb. (0.4 kg) cod fillets, rinsed and pat dry
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 3 dashes pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (207°C).
  2. Arrange the cod fillets in baking tray. Drizzle the olive oil onto the fish, follow by lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper.
  3. Bake the cod in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, depends on the thickness of the cod. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
