Really Simple Cod Recipe


I love a simple, great tasting recipe and the one below for Cod fish totally fits the bill.  Cod,  next to Salmon is my favorite seafood.  It is also the one fish that is enjoyed in every country that borders salt water.  As a kid growing up Cod was served at least once a week.  In its dried form, called Baccala, Cod was a welcome guest every Christmas Eve that I can remember.

For some great Cod and Baccala recipes be sure to pick up a copy of Gracie’s Christmas Eve Recipe Book – Night of the 7 Fishes.  Not just for Christmas Eve but for any night or any time, I know you’ll enjoy the book.  Click on the title above to connect with it on Amazon.

The following recipe didn’t make the book, but was featured in Mediterranean Meals.



  • 4 (6-ounce) cod steaks
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the broiler. Brush both sides of the cod with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Broil the cod about 7 to 8 inches from the heat source for 5 minutes on each side. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of oil, the capers, and the lemon juice for 1 minute. Remove from heat, add parsley, and stir. Pour over the cod steaks and serve.

This is a real simple, time saving dish and Cod is always modestly priced.  I have also added this recipes to list of recipes in the Gracie’s Recipes tab under the header and on the side bar.  If you ever get side tracked and need it to fine it fast you now know where to look.
