  • 4 cod fillets 6 ounces each
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon half sliced, half juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley divided


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F, and pat cod fillets with a paper towel until dry.
  • Place the cod fillets in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the olive oil on top, along with the lemon juice. Add the garlic to the baking dish, the lemon slices and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of parsley.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cod fillets are opaque and start to become flakey, about 12-18 minutes, depending on their thickness.
  • Serve immediately garnished with the remaining parsley with choice of sides.


Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 4 days in the fridge. Reheat in the oven.
