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.

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

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.

Serves 4.
