I just love the easy of this quick oven baked cod recipe, especially on those days when you’re short on time and need to get dinner on the table fast. Feel free to substitute any mild white fish for the cod. If time allows, pour the pan juices that collect after baking into a skillet and reduce them down to make a nice sauce to pour over the cod and whichever vegetables you serve alongside.

Start by combining melted butter, freshly squeezed lemon juice, minced garlic, granulated onion, and salt.

Place the fillets in a single layer in a baking dish that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray. I like to toss the squeezed lemons in there for a little added color.

Pour the butter mixture evenly over the fillets.

I decided to toss in a few tiny tomatoes just for the heck of it. They add yet more color and taste great after roasting.

Cook the fish until reaches an internal temperature of 145F or is completely opaque and flakes easily with a fork (about 10 minutes per inch of thickness).

If time allows, pour the pan juices into a skillet and reduce for a minute or two on the stove top - pour over fish and vegetables.
