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.

  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 1 pound cod or haddock fillets
  • 2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup black olives (optional)


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450ºF (230ºC).

Step 2

Rinse the fish fillets and pat them dry. Lay the fillets flat in a baking dish. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the fillets. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Step 3

In a skillet, saute the onion with butter or olive oil until tender and softened, but not browned. Combine the onion, tomatoes, rosemary and juice from the remaining lemon half. Spoon this mixture over the fish filets.

Step 4

Bake for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2 inch (1 cm) thickness of fish, until the fish is opaque. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Garnish the dish with black olives if you desire. Serve over boiled potatoes or rice.

Serves 4.

Make it Healthier:

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.
