Cod often gets a bad reputation as being boring or flavorless; many often assume it’s only use is a British style fish and chips. However this light and flaky whitefish needs very little to be delicious, and there are so many ways to cook cod.

Cod is not considered an expensive fish so you shouldn’t have any issue finding a good piece in your grocer’s freezer section. I was able to find this wild caught Icelandic cod which I thought would be perfect when baked in the Mediterranean style.

Ingredients List

450 grams (1 pound) Cod – if it is a large fillet like mine then you can cut it into 4 smaller pieces. I find fish is best presented in 100 gram or about 1/4 pound pieces.

400 grams Canned Cherry Tomatoes – you can also use fresh cherry tomatoes but I find the canned variety bakes up less acidic, plus it comes in the tomato juice for extra cooking liquid.

3 cloves Garlic – thinly sliced

1 tsp Oregano – dry

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black Pepper – freshly cracked

This dish is so easy to make because you can just add everything right to the baking dish and pop it in the oven. Just lay your fish fillets on the dish, pour over the tin of cherry tomatoes, and sprinkle over the garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Then simply drizzle with olive oil and pop in the oven.

I bake this cod dish at 200C or 400F for about 10 minutes. About halfway through you can spoon over some of the tomato liquid right onto the fish if you like. To serve just lift the fish onto a plate with a spatula and spoon over some cherry tomatoes. Garnish with a sprig of herb (I used lemon thyme) and enjoy!
