Cod is a relatively mild-tasting fish, which means it's an easy fish to add flavor with. A simple drizzle of lemon, garlic, olive oil combined with a sliver of butter for added flavor, and some fresh chopped parsley make this heart-healthy fish dish divine.
- 4 6-ounce pieces cod
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place fish in a baking dish large enough to hold the fish in one layer. Season fish with a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place butter and olive oil in a small nonstick skillet. Heat on medium low. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add lemon and parsley, then remove from heat. Drizzle garlic mixture over top of fish. Bake for 12-14 minutes until fish flakes easily with a fork.
