Baked Cod with Roasted Vegetables

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Baked Cod has always been such favorite seafood of ours.


We prepare it so many ways but this one is the one we make most often and the best part is you can use any kind of fish you really like.


This basic recipe is great with so many kinds of seafood including shellfish.


My amazing baked cod fish is topped with a Parmesan crust and a delicious mound of roasted vegetables on top.


Then added toasted bread crumbs on a bed of sauteed spinach makes this simple but so gourmet.


A true summer meal that will bring that fresh taste of the sea on your plate.


It truly is a delightful recipe, scroll down and see why it's tops in our home.

What Kind Of Fish



Any white fish will do well that's hardy.


I am a huge seafood lover and living in Florida, we are lucky to get fish very fresh most of the time.


My husband loves to go surf fishing at the beach and has caught many delicious kinds of fish.


Cod is a Northern fish and being from Upstate New York a favorite.


We often use fresh flounder or snook in this recipe when he gets a good day fishing.


When I visit home in Utica, New York, we always use haddock.



Baked Cod with Roasted Vegetables




Keep it simple



Use easy cooking vegetables when making this dish.


Fish cooks quickly and you want to make sure the vegetables are done with the fish.


I don't recommend potatoes unless they are cooked first.


Peppers and onions do well with this dish also.

Topping



When I cook this fish I love the tomatoes sliced very thin so I use a mandolin to slice them.


They cook quickly and taste great with the Parmesan toasted bread crumbs.


We just love tomatoes roasted.

Squash



Any squash I've used cooks quickly roasted.


Yellow, green work very well with this cod dish.


I don't recommend butternut squash unless you par boil it first and the added sweetness doesn't compliment the cod very well.

For the Spinach



Here's how I cook my spinach.


I use fresh spinach mostly always.


Add a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan add a few cloves of minced garlic, saute until wilted, salt, pepper and a pinch of cayenne pepper.


This time I also added around 1 cup of snap peas with the spinach and sauteed for around 10 minutes.


That's it!

Cod Fish




In our home especially at Christmas, we always have cod fish in sauce, called baccala.


We also deep fry our cod in batter.


This is the perfect summer and fall meal preparing this with roasted vegetables.


Cod is one of those fish that's so versatile, you can use it for just about any recipe.

Thick or Thin Zucchini



If you like zucchini mushy, then slice it thinner, we happen to like ours when it's still a little firm and not too soft.


Cutting them in thicker chunks will keep them soft but not overcooked.

Seasoning



This is a question you can only answer.


If you love dill, oregano, basil, parsley or any other seasonings for fish, adapt this recipe.


Go ahead and substitute fresh lemon or lime juice, do so.


This is a guideline to how I prepare this dish, change it any way you like.


I love spicy and add more cayenne pepper to my spinach, omit it if you don't like spicy food.


Please let me know how you love your fish, I would love to hear from you.

The Wine



The wine makes a big difference, taste it first, if you don't like the taste when drinking it, that wine will ruin the dish.


That's my rule of thumb, if you like it, use it, always buy a good grade wine, I use Pinot Grigio.


More expensive wines tend to taste better when cooking and avoid any kind of cooking wine, they are full of salt.




this is the white wine used pinot grigio for this This is a baked cod fish on a white plate with a fall orange leaf basket in the background, a blue water glass and fork with napkin.

Fresh or Frozen



If you live up North you can find fresh cod.


We always use frozen since we can't get it fresh.


However, you can use other fresh fish if you live in the South that you like.


This baked cod with roasted vegetables is a flavorful easy dish that any seafood lover will appreciate.


The cod is just bursting with delicious flavors and the toasted bread crumbs with Parmesan are the perfect combination on top.

  11. We eat a lot of fish also. And poor Hubby is dying to get to his shore fishing too but it's going to be a while before we can get away. So in the meantime we do eat a lot of cod as well as tuna, and wild-caught salmon. Your cod looks delicious -- have you tried it with a puttanesca sauce on it?? It's great too.

    1. I would love it with olives but my husband hates them, puttanesca sauce is a favorite of mine, my mom made it all the time and added shrimp to it was my favorite sauce for pasta!
