Baked Cod and Veggies Recipe

“This tastes great whether prepared in the oven or on the grill,” Monica Woods assures from Springfield, Missouri.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 cod fillets (6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute the onion in oil until tender. Add the red pepper, mushrooms, garlic, allspice, salt and pepper; cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the olives, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 teaspoons parsley. Spoon onto the center of a large piece of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.).
  • 2. Place cod over vegetables; sprinkle with remaining lemon juice and parsley. Fold foil over and fold in the edges twice, forming a pouch. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 2 servings.
