Mediterranean Baked Cod Recipe

Mediterranean baked cod

This baked cod recipe carries the flavors of the Mediterranean.

It calls for either cod or haddock. Either fish would be perfect because the fillets are not too thin and both fish are mild tasting.

This recipe for baked cod fish is already super healthy, with the inclusion of lemon, rosemary and vegetables.

That said, the recipe says to use either butter or oil. I think this recipe is tasty, healthier and more authentic if you use olive oil, so I would use that. Butter is delicious though!
