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.
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.
