Perfect Baked Cod

If you’re someone who’s afraid of cooking seafood at home, cod is the fish for you. It’s basically impossible to mess up: It cooks quickly, is hard to overcook (unless you really forget about it), and is easy to flavor however you want.

INGREDIENTS
cod filets, about 1-inch thick
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for baking dish
1 c. cherry tomatoes
lemon, sliced, plus more for garnish
garlic cloves, smashed but not peeled
sprigs thyme
2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 400° and pat cod filets with a paper towel until dry. Season all over with salt and pepper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil, cherry tomatoes, lemon slices, garlic, and thyme.
  3. Brush a baking dish with olive oil. Pour tomato-oil mixture into dish, then nestle in cod.
  4. Bake until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.
  5. Serve garnished with parsley, more lemon juice, and pan sauce.
