Cod with Lemon and Vegetables

I try to eat fish as often as possible, but it isn’t always the easiest thing to cook. Many times I have overcooked it and just ended up with an apt that stinks of fish. Now when I cook it, I make a little “fish bag” with lemon and whatever vegetables I have in the fridge. It steams the fish perfectly and comes out great every time!

1 pound white fish (I like cod best, but tilapia is nice too)
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful of mushrooms, thinly sliced
Couple of asparagus
Half small white onion, thinly sliced
Small red potato, very thinly sliced
Crushed red pepper
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice all of your vegetables- you can really use whatever veggies you like, just make sure to slice everything thin enough that it cooks all the way through. Place your fish on a piece of aluminum foil, which should be large enough that you can fold into a “pocket.” Add a little olive oil on the fish and top with a few mini pieces of butter, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Top with sliced lemon then add your vegetables. Cook for 25 minutes. Be careful when opening the bag, the steam is very hot!

One thought on “Cod with Lemon and Vegetables

  1. Perfect recipe, especially for the summer! Cooked it on the grill-also eliminates the smell of fish in ones home
    So easy to prepare, loved the vegetable combination, and the cod was a great choice of fish, one of my favorites.
    It gave me a quick, healthy alternative since we are in the process of packing up the kitchen and my kitchen tools are down to the basics
