Easy Baked Cod for Two

Barbara Kavorkian


I have been trying to get more fish into my diet, but a lot of recipes call for pan frying and deep frying, etc. Well, they wind up being almost as bad as a deep fried twinkie on a stick after all of that. Here is a lovely recipe that you should have everything on hand. It is light and has a refreshing lemon and thyme hint without overpowering it.

How to Make Easy Baked Cod for Two


  1. 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.
  2. Note:
    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.
