The lemon pulls this flavorful and healthy dish together. You can also use grated Parmesan cheese instead of Romano. —Thomas Faglon, Somerset, New Jersey

Ingredients

  • 4 cod fillets (4 ounces each )
  • 1 pound fresh thin asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. Place cod and asparagus on a 15x10x1-in. baking sheet brushed with oil. Add tomatoes, cut side down. Brush fish with lemon juice; sprinkle with lemon zest. Sprinkle fish and vegetables with Romano cheese. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 12 minutes.
Remove pan from oven; preheat broiler. Broil cod mixture, 3-4 in. from heat until vegetables are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • If asparagus isn't in season, fresh green beans make a great substitution and will cook in about the same amount of time.
  • We tested with cod fillets that were about 3/4 in. thick. You'll need to adjust the bake time up or down if your fillets are thicker or thinner.
