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.

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.

Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli – Quick and Easy – 25 minutes or Less

Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli-4-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-quick and easy shrimp recipes

Quick and Easy Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli….

…….is great served with your favorite pasta or potatoes. Gammy had hers gluten free with a microwaved “baked” potato topped with some of the garlic and oil from the shrimp and broccoli pan and…..

…..I had mine on top of some fettuccini pasta cooked al dente.

Put a pot of salted water on for your pasta. Add your pasta to the pot and when the water comes to a boil your pasta should be done.

That’s right you don’t have to wait for it to boil before you put in the pasta. Stir it a few times as it cooks to keep it from sticking together.

If it is done al dente before the shrimp and broccoli are ready just drain the water out and eyeball a couple of tablespoons of olive oil on top. Gently mix it up to get the pasta coated with the oil and put it on an idle back burner to keep warm.

If necessary, thaw out the shrimp in the microwave or in a bowl of water and if also necessary peel and detain them. But,, you can buy them peeled, deveined and not frozen in the fresh fish section of your grocery store.

Put a large skillet or sauté pan on at medium high and add enough olive oil to coat the bottom. 

When it gets heated up put in the broccoli. Sprinkle it with a little salt and pepper and toss it a few times as it cooks.

Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-quick and easy shrimp recipes

You can substitute just about any vegetable that you want adjusting the cooking times as needed. For instance baby carrots or brussels sprouts will take longer than the broccoli and on the other extreme spinach will take even less time than the shrimp.

While the broccoli is cooking chop the garlic and when the broccoli has softened a little add the shrimp, butter and garlic to the pan. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the white wine or chicken stock.

Push the broccoli aside as necessary to make room for the shrimp to lay on the bottom of the pan. After about a minute turn the shrimp over.

Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy recipes-shrimp recipes-quick and easy shrimp recipes

Just about a minute on the other side for the shrimp. Toss it all together and serve it on top of your pasta. Your Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli is ready to enjoy. Bon Appetito! Of course with some freshly grated parmesan cheese on top and…..

Simple Scallopini Dinner – Quick and Easy- 23 Minutes – Gluten Free

Simple Scallopini Dinner-10-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

 Your Simple Scallopini Dinner….

…..will be very quick and easy. And,,WOW,,is it good! First let’s get the veggies prepped, on a baking pan and in the oven.

Set your oven at 450°F/222°C. Cut up the zucchini into thick chunks or thick french fry shaped strips and the potatoes into smaller pieces or french fry shapes.

The potatoes will take longer to cook so let’s make the potato pieces smaller.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Put the veggies into a bowl and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper then heavily sprinkle with grated parmesan.

Toss it all together and repeat the drizzle, sprinkle, toss routine.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-2-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. I use this nonstick cookie sheet that I got on amazon and it makes everything quicker and easier.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-3-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Into the oven, middle shelf or higher ’cause your going to switch to the broiler near the end of the process.

Now for the scallopini. You could use veal or chicken cutlets hammered to about 1/8″ thick. Tonight I went with these thin sliced pork cutlets and I didn’t have to hammer them.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-4-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Salt and pepper both sides of the cutlets, chop up the garlic and cut up the lemon.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-5-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Put a skillet on at medium and lightly spray or wipe it with olive oil.

Check on the veggies and when you poke a piece of potato with a table fork and it is almost but not quite as cooked as you want it switch the oven to broiler setting.

Put the filets in the pan and cook them for just a minute a side.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-6-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

As they get done move them to a plate and stack them up so that they stay warm.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-7-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes

Put the butter, garlic and parsley in the pan. Squeeze in the lemon juice and toss in the rinds. Mix it up with a wooden spoon getting the bits off the bottom.

Simple Scallopini Dinner-8-poppopcooks.com-gluten free recipes-Paleo recipes-quick and easy recipes-scallopini recipes
