baked cod and veggies

I've really been enjoying looking through all of the recipes available on Taste of Home's website.  Recently, I searched for fish recipes - in case you haven't noticed, we don't eat much fish around here and my recipe box is pretty empty in that section.

I actually hate fish.  It makes me gag.  So I was really excited to find a recipe on Taste of Home that I could actually tolerate.  I might even admit that I liked it!  This is a delicious cod recipe (if any fish recipe can be called delicious).  I'm committed to adding a bit more seafood to our diet, so this recipe will appear on our table again soon.  If you are a fellow fish hater, check it out! :)

Baked Cod and Veggies
modified from Taste of Home
1 onion, halved and sliced
1 T. olive oil
1 red pepper, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 t. allspice
dash salt and pepper
2 T. lemon juice, divided
1 t. minced parsley, divided
2 cod fillets

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 1 T. of lemon juice and 2 t. parsley.  Spoon onto the center of a large piece of heavy-duty foil.  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 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Serves 2.

    1. I'm like you...not a big fish eater. But, I have found that halibut is wonderful. A white fish that never tastes fishy, is flaky and mild. You can bake it, fry it or get a "steak" and bbq it. It will taste like any flavor you add to it. I also like cod and sole. Good luck in adding more fish to your diet. I try and have it at least once a week.
