5-Ingredient Lemon Garlic Cod

By: Blair Lonergan from
5-Ingredient Lemon Garlic Cod
5-Ingredient Lemon Garlic Cod

"Light, fresh, and easy! This 5-Ingredient, 5-Minute Lemon Garlic Cod is an affordable and healthy dinner that the entire family will enjoy! Gluten-free, low-carb, and high in protein, the simple meal will suit just about everyone around the table. The seafood counter at the grocery store can kind of be an interesting place. It’s not like picking up chicken breasts or ground beef in the meat department where you generally know exactly what you’re getting each time. Instead, the seafood counter is more of a crap shoot. What will be available? What will be on sale? And how the heck will I prepare whatever I come home with? When I recently found cod at an incredibly low price behind the seafood counter at our local store, I was determined to find a new and delicious way to prepare this versatile white fish (other than the classic frozen fish sticks)! The end result was this easy Lemon Garlic Cod that only requires 5 simple ingredients and about 5 minutes of prep! The fish is tender and mild (perfect for little kids who don’t want a strong “fish” taste); richly flavored with garlic and butter; and freshened-up with a hefty dose of lemon and herbs. The flavor and texture just can’t be beat, making this cod a simple solution for your next visit to the seafood counter!"

NotesThis recipe is also gluten-free, low carb, high protein, and low calorie.

Would this work with halibut?

I love to use frozen cod for baked fish recipes since it isn't too strong in flavor, and it seems to always be on sale. The next time you think about getting that deep fryer out for fish fry, consider this baked version instead! It is so healthy that you can even go back for seconds, and the cleanup is so much easier.

This 5-ingredient dinner looks so good! I'll definitely be making this light summer meal this weekend.
