Dinner Time!

Cod Loins

I have a delicious recipe for Cod Loins for you. It is healthy, low in sodium, tasty and filling.

You need just a few things. We are a small family so I usually cook just what we need for one meal (when I cook fish).

What you will need:
  • Cod Loins
  • Fresh Tomatoes ( I will use fresh frozen in the winter)
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Minced Garlic
  • Greek Seasonings (We have a lot of Greek Restaurants here in this area and I have found that I really like the seasonings they use)
  • If you have some fresh herbs on hand that are good with fish you can use them as well
  • A stoneware or glass dish to cook the fish in
Place the cod loins into the cooking dish. You can do this while they are still frozen. (This is great to prepare earlier in the day and place in the oven 20-30 minutes before time to serve.) Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle salt, seasonings and add your minced garlic.

Chop your tomatoes and place on top of the season cod. Preheat oven to 350 degrees f. Place in oven and cook 20-30 minutes. (Depends on how thawed out they are ;-) You can smell them when they are done.)

After removing from oven, serve on plate. Serve with a vegetable or salad and fruit or whole grain rice or potatoes.

My sweet husband made the salad and put the fish in the oven for me while I was off teaching a fitness class at a near by gym. If the meat is frozen, you can prepare it earlier in the day and just let it sit out and thaw until you are ready to cook it. 10 year olds like this too!

Hi, Melissa, that looks delish! I've made some of our snapper similar to that before. It's great.

You made me realize I spelled 'hazard' wrong (with 2 z's), so I fixed it! That's what I get for relying on my memory.
