Baked Cod One Pan Dinner – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes

Baked Cod-5-poppopcooks.com-cod recipes-baked fish-baked cod recipes-cod fish recipes-easy cod recipes-cod fillet recipes-cod recipe healthy

Your Baked Cod One Pan Dinner is…

……easy and delicious. And,,,it’s all going to be ready to serve in 25 minutes or less. 

We’ve gotten to where we do the whole meal in one pan in the oven or one pot on the stove a couple of nights a week. As long as it still turns out real good it works for us and for a lot of my readers.

When you do it in the oven you should aim at using ingredients that all take as close as possible to the same time to cook. That doesn’t mean that you couldn’t add ingredients after the first ingredients have cooked some. But, doing that in the oven is a little more involved than on the stovetop.

This baked cod one pan dinner is 10 minutes doing the easy preparation and 15 minutes in the oven.

Set the oven at 450°F/232°C. Put the butter in a bowl in the microwave and melt it.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or use a nonstick cookie sheet. Peel the potatoes and carrots then cut them into french fry shapes.

Baked Cod-poppopcooks.com-cod recipes-baked fish-baked cod recipes-cod fish recipes-easy cod recipes-cod fillet recipes-cod recipe healthy

Put the carrots and potatoes in the cookie sheet and drizzle them with some olive oil. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and 1/2 of the rest of the spices on the pile and toss everything together with your hands or a flipper kind of utensil.

Spread them out towards the sides of the cookie sheet leaving room in the middle for the cod fillets.

Add the lemon juice, and the rest of the dry ingredients except the salt to the melted butter. The cod fillets have enough of their own salt.

Lay the cod fillets on the empty spot in the cookie sheet.

Brush half of the melted butter mixture onto the cod fillets.

Put it in the oven on a middle shelf and bake it for 15 minutes. If you want it to be a little crisp on the top surfaces switch the oven to broiler and move it to the top shelf for the last couple of minutes.

Top off the cod fillets with the rest of the butter mixture and serve up your Baked Cod One Pan Dinner.

Gammy opted for some Chardonnay tonight so, yup, that’s what we had and it made real nice combo with our Baked Cod.

Shrimp Scampi – Quick and easy – 20 Minutes Max

Shrimp Scampi-5-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-Italian recipes

Shrimp Scampi….

……..is quick and easy and delicious!

Shrimp Scampi will be at the top of your list of “go to” choices when you want to keep it simple but still would like it to be real good and…..

……for a great game day finger food just forego the pasta and serve your Shrimp Scampi with toothpicks!

Shrimp Scampi is a basic simple Italian dish of just a few ingredients that you will not mess up.

In fact any fancy Italian restaurant has to keep it simple to have it turn out well and they cannot make it any better than you are going to.

Shrimp Scampi-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-Italian recipes

Put a pot of salted water on for the pasta and if the shrimp have to thaw out put them in a bowl of water.

While the coming to a boil and the thawing out are going on lets put together a salad for tonight’s veggie and chop up the garlic. Caprese Salad would be our choice for our Italian mood dinner.

Caprese salad-poppopcooks.com

The salad is ready, the shrimp have thawed out and the pasta water is boiling.

Put the pasta in the pot of water and stir it right away to keep it from sticking together. Remember to stir it a few times as it cooks.

Put on a skillet that is large enough to handle all the shrimp laid out flat. Set the burner at medium and add the olive oil and 1/2 of the butter. When the butter has melted put in the garlic.

 

As soon as you get the fragrance of the garlic cooking add the salt, pepper, parsley and red pepper flakes.

Shrimp Scampi-3-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-Italian recipes

Stir it all together and lay the shrimp out in the skillet. Give the shrimp just half a minute to a minute a side depending on their size.

Then put in the rest of the butter, squeeze in the lemon juice and add the white wine. Oh, and a splash of the pasta water

Shrimp Scampi-4-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-Italian recipes

Stir it all together and just a minute or so after it comes up to a simmer…….

Shrimp Scampi-5-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-Italian recipes

……..enjoy your quick and easy, homemade, better than a restaurant Shrimp Scampi!

Bon Appetito!!

Oh yeah and a chilled bottle of Pinot Grigio or Soave will complete that “sitting in a restaurant” feeling.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas – Quick and Easy -One Pot – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-4-poppopcooks.com

Shrimp Risotto with Peas

Yes, you will have this whole meal on the table in 25 minutes or less. Yes, you will use just one pot for the whole meal. Leftovers (if there are any) just go in a zip lock and plop in the freezer for a lunch at work or a super  quick and easy weeknight nuke it no brainer.

Some Helpful kitchen gadgets

First let me recommend that you use Italian Arborio rice. That’s not a brand name, it’s a type of rice. It takes just a little bit longer to cook but the good taste is well worth it.

The best rice for Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Put a saucepan on at medium and add the olive oil. Chop up the onion and add it to the pan. Salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. Mix it all together and when the onion starts to get translucent add the rice. Stir the rice around enough to get all of it coated with the olive oil.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Then pour the white wine in and stir it all up. Bring it up to a simmer and stir regularly until the wine has reduced to the top of the rice.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-2-poppopcooks.com

Put half of the chicken broth into the mix and stir often as it reduces. When the liquid has reduced to the the level of the rice add the rest of the broth. Repeat the stirring and reducing until the rice is cooked. If the liquid has reduced to the level of the rice but the rice hasn’t cooked enough just add more broth – or water – in small doses until the rice is cooked. Then put the shrimp and peas into the pot.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-3-poppopcooks.com

Mix the peas and shrimp in with the rice and stir often until the shrimp has turned white and opaque in the middle. About 3 – 4 minutes. Mix in the grated parmesan cheese and enjoy your one pot Shrimp Risotto with Peas.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-4-poppopcooks.com

Top it off with a little more grated Parmesan cheese. Chilled Pinot Grigio or Chablis goes along great with this quick and easy one pot meal.
