Baked Garlic Lemon Cod

I love fresh fish and am fortunate enough to live on Long Island where it abounds. I don’t cook it enough and really should cook it more often. Fresh cod was on sale at my supermarket this week and I remembered that I  had bookmarked a recipe from Gina over at skinnytaste that would work perfectly with cod or tilaipa or any white flaky fish or shrimp too.

What a delicious easy recipe! I think next time I will add some white wine and then throw the fish under the broiler when it’s almost done cooking but this recipe is a keeper. So go get yourself some delicious fish and make it tonight!!

I served the celery root and mandarin orange salad along with the fish.


Baked Garlic Lemon Cod


  • 1 lb. fresh cod or other white flaky fish
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp light butter
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tsp fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Melt butter on a low flame in a small sauce pan. Add garlic and saute on low for about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and shut off flame.
  • Spray the bottom of a baking dish lightly with cooking spray. Place the fish on top and season with salt and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley. Bake at 400° until cooked, about 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.
