Lemon Garlic Baked Cod Recipe: A Beautiful & Healthy Fish Recipe That's Ready in About 20 Minutes

"Such an incredibly gorgeous dish, while being (secretly) very simple to prepare!" says says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "Since it comes out perfectly every time and involves minimal hands-on prep, I love to serve this to guests because it looks a lot more difficult than it really it. Because this dish is so simple, be sure to use the freshest ingredients you can find. The fish stays good in the fridge for up to three days when stored properly in a sealed container. Reheats nicely in a skillet or in the air fryer."

Cuisine: Mediterranean 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 to 18 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 23 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless cod filets or other whitefish of choice
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons capers
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

Here's how to make it:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly season the cod with sea salt and pepper on both sides. Put them into a 13x9-inch baking pan.

Add in the cherry tomatoes and garlic cloves. Drizzle with the oil, fresh lemon juice and honey.

Stir in the capers and a few lemon slices.

Bake until the cod is cooked through and flaky, about 15 to 18 minutes depending on the thickness. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges.
