Which ever way you prefer it, its easy to cook and has such a light texture when eating if cooked correctly.


Cod Fish is one of the easiest things to make. All you have to do is put the cod fillets in a baking pan, smother them with the seasoning, and bake for about 20 minutes, depending on thickness. Add a little lemon, honey and parsley and you’re all done.


Clean the fish with water and lemon juice then pat dry with a pepper towel.

The thickness of the cod fillet will impact the cooking time of the fish. A thicker and larger fillet will require a few more minutes of cooking time.

Just be sure to not over cook or the fish will be dry! A thinner fillet will cook quicker. It’s better to take the fish out to early rather then to late. For the best result cook as instructed .

There are two types of cod fish Atlantic and Pacific. Pacific Codhas moisture content a little higher than that ofAtlantic Cod, making it less firm.

Codis a nutritious and flavorful fish loaded with lean protein, vitamins, and minerals. Although lower in omega-3s than fatty fish,codcan still be part of ahealthy diet.


Yes, store bought frozencod will work but fresh fish is always better. If using frozen fish just be sure to completely thaw the cod fillets before cooking. Thaw the cod in the refrigerator.

    The recipe indicates to coat fish with honey and lemon but I do not see honey in the recipe ingredients nor did I see it used in the video. Are you using honey in this cod recipe? Thank you for sharing your recipes.

      Hi Bernie! This is optional. Yes, I did use it in this recipe. You can add the lemon and honey right before you put it in the oven or after. I hope this helps 🙂
