Tonight, I decided to try to re-create my mom's baked fish. I played with it and used some of the herbs my family love. Also, added white wine, because that makes everything taste good. I like to use wine when I cook, sometimes I even put it in the food. Just kidding!

How to Make Baked Cod Italian-Style

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400'F. Spray bottom of a 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • 2In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add garlic, peppers and onions; cook on medium for about 2 minutes or until slightly softened.
  • 3Add tomatoes and wine; continue to cook for 10 minutes or until liquid has evaporated and leaves a chunky sauce.
  • 4Trim fillets by taking off any skin and removing any bones. (Usually they come trimmed and cleaned from the fish section of your grocery store.)
  • 5Place fish fillets in the prepared baking pan in a single layer; sprinkle with lemon juice, then spoon the tomato mixture over the fish; sprinkle with Parmesan, if desired.
  • 6Bake, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until fish is opaque all the way through and flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.
