This is a cod dinner on a sheet pan so you cook everything at once and less clean up!
Cod is Toms favorite fish to order while we are out for dinner! If there is cod on the menu fried, broiled, or poached he will order it for sure! He pretends to look at the menu but I know that fish is his dinner lol! I love cooking with cod because it is a heartier milder flavor. This leads cod to take on lots of different flavors. My favorite is to prepare it with simple seasonings from the pantry and roast it in the oven. Making this recipe makes Tom smile and I hope it makes you and your family smile too.
Steps to The Perfect Seasoned Fish!
1. Acid: If using a marinade with acid do not leave more than 20 minutes to marinate. Acid cooks the fish and when you cook it will have a gummy texture. Also, after fish cooks add a squeeze of lemon or lime.
2. Season with salt and pepper and let sit for 15 minutes so the seasoning can get all the way through the fish.
3. If you want to marinate overnight fish leave out the lemon or lime and put in before cooking!
4. If you want to create your own recipe, just season with your favorite seasonings you use all the time:
- Italian Cod: 1 teaspoon of: garlic powder, oregano, onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
- Southern Style: Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning, and teaspoon salt/pepper.
- Moroccan Style: Season with teaspoon salt/pepper and smear with harissa paste.
Either way make it the way your family likes it and use the below recipe to follow heating instructions!
