How to Make Easy Baked Cod for Two
- Preheat to 400°. Place fillets in a 8x8 or 9x13 in oven safe dish. Drizzle with lemon juice and oil. Sprinkle with garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Sprinkle paprika and gently rub into fillets. Cook until fish is opaque and juicy (about 15 to 20 min, but if frozen, look at cooking time on package). Spoon juices over fish and serve.
Check weight if using frozen cod fillets. They are sometimes 3-4 oz each and you may need to use 2 fillets frozen vs 1 6 oz fillet fresh. Cod cooks typically 4-6 minutes at 375 for every 1/2 in thickness of cod.
