garlic and herb baked cod


Since it is Friday and Lent, I thought a fish recipe would be appropriate. This fish is so easy to make. It is the perfect meal to end a long work week. This is my alternative to waiting and waiting at a restaurant for a table on Friday night. When what you really want to do is put your pajamas on and sit down and relax.
I heard about this recipe and was told to use fresh herbs but I didn’t have time nor did I want to go to the grocery store so I used what I had on hand and it was still delicious. If you would like to go out and buy everything fresh be my guest but I am just letting you know everything turned out great with the dried herbs.

Prep: 5 minutes   Cook Time: 12-15 minutes   Total Time: 17-20 minutes
Oven Temp: 450°

Cod Fillets (4)
Greek Yogurt (1/3 cup)
Six Cheese Italian Blend Shredded Cheese (1/3 cup)
Garlic (1 clove)
Parsley Flakes (1 TBSP)
Basil Leaves (1 TBSP)

*Sorry I forgot the garlic in the picture.

Gather all the ingredients. Place the cod on a cookie sheet over parchment paper and set aside. Mix all the other ingredients in a bowl. (You don’t need a bowl as big as mine. I just didn’t want it to go over the edge and all over the counter)


After they are mixed well spread the mix on top of the cod.


Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until done. Fish will be soft and flaky. Turn the oven to broil for 2-5 minutes to brown the top of the fish. Serve with your choice of sides. The baked green beans and baked carrots in the picture were a wonderful choice! That recipe is coming soon!
