Elegant and Affordable: Lemon Baked Cod

GDH_LemonBakedCod_2013

This a wonderful dish that not only tastes delicious but provides a beautiful presentation when served to your guests.  Depending on what part of the world you live in Cod can either be a reasonably priced fish, or it can be a bit on the expensive side.  If that is the case, feel free to substitute it out for a different species.  Just make sure it is a mild, flaky, white fish.

        yes, I was on that post but after I pushed reply, it jumped to the next one? Crazy?

        Very strange… either way, I agree that I love potatoes and rosemary together too 🙂

    I’m always shy about cooking fish, but this recipe looks like a winner!

      I usually am to. It is one of the items that we want to interject more into our diet though. And I found this to be a really easy dish to prepare, AND tasted incredible! To make gluten-free, I would recommend replacing the regular flour with coconut flour. 🙂

    You are the best! I keep seeing cod for super cheap in the store (Great Lakes region) and wondering what I could make with it. I’ll be taking your advice in the comments to use coconut flour instead. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      Yes, cod is definitely affordable in the Great Lakes region! And I really think the coconut flour would add a nice element to the dish. 🙂

    Kenley, I love this cod recipe and I am going to try it. I have to tell you that I have prepared a few of your recipes! They are fairly easy, economical, nutritious, and delicious. This is another winner 🙂

    I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my reblog page?

      Oh not at all Judy, I’d be honored! And I really think that you’ll enjoy this cod recipe! It was amazingly delicious– the fish practically melts in your mouth 😉

    Cod has never been my favorite, but your recipe makes me want to try again. Thanks for the inspiration (and the recipe!)

      You’re quite welcome! I think you’d like it, but this recipe would easily work well with other fish types if you prefer. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!

    I’ve actually never cooked cod before, but I do enjoy eating it 🙂 For some reason, I’ve always been intimidated about cooking with fish, even though it’s much simpler and faster to cook than most meats! I’m going to look at the grocery store for some white fish this weekend 🙂

      I think you’ll enjoy it. It’s really rather simple and easy, not to mention yummy! 😉

    Cod is expensive over here that’s why I am waiting for a nice recipe before I get on to it. Yours is the simple kind that I love. It looks really good. Thank you for sharing Kenley.

      You’re welcome Danny! And if the cod is really expensive, I think any mild, white fish would go great with this recipe as well! 🙂

        Noted 🙂

        Kenley, do you happen to have a recipe for milk fish? I am very interested in that fish but no idea how to cook it…

        Sincerely,
        Danny

        I don’t Danny, sorry. I actually don’t think I’ve ever seen milk fish before. Is it a white fish? Or more similar to a tuna? a salmon?
        Kenley

      • gotasté
        January 29, 2013

        No worries Kenley. It looks like a different version of tuna to me. And that’s all I know 🙂
        Thank you for your reply.

        You’re quite welcome Danny. Wish I could be more help. If it is similar to tuna, I would say grilling it even with just a bit of cracked pepper and kosher salt would be great!
        Kenley

        Thanks for your reply Kenley. I shall try and let you know how it goes. 🙂
