Summer Cod Bake

I don't know about ya'll but I'm a big fan when it comes to seafood! Especially during the summer season where it makes for a nice light meal on a hot day. Fish can sometimes be tricky to cook, without the right method it can sometimes turn out dry. And unlike our friends we want our fish to flake easily...

I have discovered a foolproof method to get that perfect flakey texture at the touch of a fork. Oh and did I mention this recipe only takes 5 minutes to prep? Not sold yet? How about one pan? And seasonal summer produce? I've said too much you're in!

Serves 2


1 lb of fresh cod fillet

1 zucchini

1 yellow squash

2 ripe tomatoes

A few sprigs of fresh thyme

1 lemon

salt and pepper

olive oil

You'll Need:

Large baking tray or dish

Aluminum foil


Preheat oven to 350. Line a 18 by 13 sheet pan with aluminum foil. Slice tomatoes, zucchini, and squash into 1/2" discs spread out on the pan. Place cod on top. Drizzle olive oil over the fish and veg. Season generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle fresh thyme leaves. Cover the tray tight with more aluminum foil. Bake for 30 min. When you take the foil off the veggies should be tender and juicy and the cod should be flaking apart. For the final touch of flavor squeeze over fresh lemon juice.That was easy. Dinner is served.

Serving suggestion: I usually serve on its own but a green salad or rice would make a nice edition.
