- 1 lb cod fillets, rinsed and patted dry (fresh is better, but frozen works too)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (fresh squeezed is best)
- 3 dashes cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (for garnish)
Preheat oven to 400F.
Arrange the cod fillets in glass baking dish. Drizzle the oil onto the fish, then follow with the lemon juice. Add salt and cayenne pepper.
Bake the fish in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Do not overcook or the fish will be rubbery.
Garnish with parsley if you like and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Tip: Add lemon slices and cherry tomatoes before cooking for a fancier garnish if you like!
