Best Baked Cod

This baked cod is my easy and foolproof recipe for perfectly flaky fish, every time. A simple buttery and garlicky herb topping transforms simple cod fillets into a light and healthy weeknight dish.

BAKED COD INGREDIENTS

Garlic and butter will always be a dynamic duo when it comes to flavoring seafood. But here’s a few other things you’ll need.

  • Cod: Look for wild Atlantic or Pacific cod varieties.
  • Butter: I use unsalted butter so I can add as much salt as I want to this recipe.
  • Garlic: Fresh is the way to go here, but you can use garlic powder in a pinch.
  • Parsley: Go with Italian flat-leaf parsley in the garlic butter and as a garnish. Not a fan of parsley? Try chives, thyme or other herbs!
  • Lemon: Fish and lemon are best friends!
  • Paprika: Add just a touch to elevate the flavor profile.

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT BAKED COD

Pan searing is one way to achieve that beautiful crust. But I find that baking it in the oven is hands down the most foolproof method. Here’s how to make it.

  1. Make the garlic herb butter. Stir the topping ingredients together.
  2. Coat the fish. Smear the garlic herb butter on the cod filets.
  3. Bake the fish. Once the fish is flaky, it’s ready to serve.

HOW TO KNOW WHEN BAKED COD IS DONE

A white fish like cod is done when you can flake it with a fork. But it’s always best to cook fish to its proper temperature of 145°F/63°C.
