We eat a lot of fish and seafood in my house. To say that it’s one of my favorite foods would be an understatement. If I could eat it every night, I would. That is how much I love fish and seafood. Cod is one of my favorite fish to cook as it’s so easy, healthy and delicious. Cod is a very versatile fish and can be made in many ways. I chose to make Baked Cod with Fresh Herbs. It’s made with a bit of butter, olive oil, rosemary, basil, mint, oregano, garlic, paprika, lemon and some white wine. My Baked Cod with Fresh Herbs may look difficult to make, but it definitely isn’t so it can be enjoyed for a weeknight meal. You can prep all the ingredients in the morning or the night before so when you are ready to make it, you have everything on hand. It’s also elegant enough to make for guests. So if you are fish and seafood lover like I am, and looking for a great cod recipe, give my Baked Cod with Fresh Herbs a try. You are going to love it.
