Baked Cod Fish Recipe

July 19, 2017

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great summer.

Well, with the warmer weather here, now is the perfect time to have fish for dinner.

I love making fish for dinner during the summer months and it cooks up so fast and it's really healthy for you too.

Eating fish is an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. These essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don't produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat.

Below are the cod fish filets that I added to a large pan.  Inside the pan I added lemon juice and water.

Next I added bread crumbs sprinkled on top of each cod fish fillet.

To each piece of fish I added small dabs of butter.  In the photo below, the butter is already melting on top of the fish.

This is how the fish looks when it's all done baking in the oven.

If you do not wish to make the fish in the oven, then you can grill the fish.  This will be the next way that I will try and prepare the cod fish.

You can make whatever fish you like.  Flounder is also a good fish to bake this way.

I love serving the cod fish with vegetables and rice.  We always have a big salad with our dinner too.

I usually like to serve the fish with brown rice, but I had white rice left over from chinese food that we had for dinner another night.

To reheat the rice, I just put the rice in a large dish and add water and butter to that.  I put the cover on the dish and I heat it up for a few minutes in the microwave oven.

In our house we don't like to waste food.  I even sometimes put a little bit of rice mixed in with our dog Bosco's dry dog food.  He loves that.  😀

I hope you like this baked cod fish recipe.  It's so good even my teen loves it for dinner.

**  If you don't feel like baking your fish than you can also grill it.  This is another easy way to make cod fish.  You just take tin foil and spray with cooking spray, and add the fish to that, wrap it up and grill for a few minutes.

  1. This looks wonderful, my friend! I have never made cod as I tend to stick with salmon, but this is something I would thoroughly enjoy.

    Hugs to you!

  2. That does look like a nice, light, easy summer meal!

  3. Oh this one is right up my husband's alley! Off to pin's on the menu. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe!

  4. Fish is a great choice for summer since it cooks so quickly and who wants to turn on the oven?! I try to make it once a week but sometimes fail. I like to buy it the same day that I want to make it as I prefer it fresh, but frozen works too. Thanks for the recipe Julie!


  5. Hi Julie, thank you for sharing your cod fish recipe. We love cod here and this one looks so good. I will be pinning this one for sure.
    Have a great Thursday. xo

  6. Thanks so much for the recipe. I like cod and always get it when they have fish and chips in a restaurant. During the summer I do not turn the oven on, even with A/C makes the house to darn hot.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  10. This looks really yummy Julie! Thanks for sharing your recipe with SYC.

  11. I heard just today on the news that the stocks of cod in the Atlantic are now back up and they can start fishing it again near the UK (where I am) for a long time now it's all be restricted and cod has been mostly imported I think. I imagine this will make fresh cod a bit cheaper here so this recipe will come in handy, thanks.

  12. Love this recipe, Julie! What a great way to get the taste of breaded, fried fish in a much healthier way. We eat a lot of fish, so I look forward to giving your recipe a try.
