We enjoy fish frequently, and this baked version has a tempting mild orange flavor. It comes out of the oven flaky and moist, and it's just the thing to make for a delightful light meal. — Jacquelyn Dixon, LaPorte, IA


  • 4 cod fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place fillets in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute onion and garlic until tender. Spoon over fish. Mix orange zest and citrus juices; drizzle over fish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper and parsley.
