Lemon Baked Cod

Lemon Baked Cod is so easy to make and the kids love it too!

  • Fresh Cod Filet's
  • Weber Zesty Lemon Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Whole Lemon - Sliced Medium to Thin

(If you don't have the Zesty Lemon here are the ingredients in it so you can add your own: onion, garlic, salt, bell pepper, lemon peel, paprika, rosemary, dill, parsley)

Rinse your Cod Filet's.

Line a baking sheet with foil and then parchment paper on top of the foil. Enough foil to be able to wrap your fish. The parchment paper prevents the foil from touching the fish and tainting the flavor. You don't need as much paper as foil just enough for the bottom.

Place Cod on paper, lightly season with salt, pepper and Zesty Lemon Seasoning.

Squeeze the juice from the lemon slices over fish and then place lemon on the top of Fillet.

Close the foil sides first then the ends. Do not smash the foil down you want a pocket like space between the fish and the foil.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Just until fork tender. I remove the fish after 15 minutes if it's not a thick fillet and let sit for a few minutes covered while I prepare the plates.

Wine option: You can add a 1/4 - 1/2 C good white wine to the fish before baking. Remember to add a wine you would drink!

Mix it up, use some chicken broth and add some capers or pesto too! We add that to Salmon, Cod is a very buttery fish all on it's own!
