Okay, this fish is the easiest meal I’ve ever made. It is truly my go-to dish as it’s absolutely delicious and completely foolproof! It turns out moist and perfect every time and I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t rave about it. Well, if that doesn’t sound like I’m bragging I don’t know what does! But, as you know, it’s not bragging if it’s true.
- Approximately 2 pounds of Cod (1 large or 2 smaller pieces)
- Olive oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Lemon pepper
- Kosher salt
- Dill weed (dried)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle some olive oil in a large baking dish (I use a 9×13 inch glass dish). Place the fish in the dish and drizzle some olive oil over the top, rubbing it into the fish with your fingers. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the fish. Sprinkle with Kosher salt, lemon pepper and dill. Cover the baking dish tightly with foil. Bake for 20 minutes.
I don’t have exact measurements for the spices as I just liberally sprinkle them over the fish.
Another method I have used is to cover the bottom of the baking dish with sliced lemon wheels and to bake the fish on top of them.
I save the broth that’s left in the bottom of the baking dish after cooking as it’s wonderful and flavorful, not fishy at all. I add it into the liquid when making cous cous, rice or quinoa to infuse flavor.
