Another simple, yummy recipe for cod. Please feel free to use fresh herbs in place of the dried. I usually sprinkle the top with some fresh parsley. Can also use fresh tomatoes when they are in season.
- 1 lb cod fish fillet
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice (I like whole, peeled canned tomatoes and I crush them by hand)
- salt and pepper
- Preheat your over to 400 degrees.
- Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.
- Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.
- Add onion and pepper and saute until softened.
- Stir in flour, brown sugar, herbs, salt and pepper to taste, and combine well.
- Gradually stir in tomatoes with juice.
- Bring sauce to a boil.
- Keep stiring until sauce has slightly thickened.
- Place fish fillets in baking dish and top with the sauce.
- Place dish in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
Ok, so I hate it when people rate a recipe low and then start telling all the things they did differently when making the recipe. This is a little different, since I made some changes and it still came out great. I added some crushed garlic with the other veggies, I added about 2 T of balsamic vinegar with the tomatoes, and I cooked the whole thing on the stove - no need for the oven on a hot summer day. Great alternative to the usual fish recipes.
I have cooked this recipe several times and always comes out perfect. I have used cod, halibut, shark, croaker, gafftop, sand trout and speckled trout. It does not matter, it will come out perfect every time. LOVE IT!!!
Delicious! Was looking for a healthy baked fish that is easy - this is it! Used fresh rock fish and served over rice with a green salad. I microwaved leftovers for lunch the next day which was a great bonus. Thank you so much!
