Cod is one of the first fish most people think of when they hear the term " white fish", and for good reason. Many restaurants serve cod in sandwiches and fish and chips. It's a favorite due to the mild flavor and ease of handling, and it's well-known to cook very quickly, making it a great option for fast meals that still satisfy hungry diners. Like most seafood, cod is loaded with all the good things like low fat, high protein, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and potassium, just to name a few. Cod is a great energy source without adding all the fat and hormones you often find in red meat. Cod is also incredibly affordable, so even if you have a large family, you can make a healthy and delicious meal for a reasonable price, all without sacrificing flavor or satisfaction. Baked, grilled, broiled, or fried, cod will stand up to rough handling and all kinds of flavors and sauces. If you haven't tried cooking with cod yet, now's a great time.
Some tips before you begin
Though this recipe calls for cod, you can very easily replace it with pollock, which is the other white fish most people know of. It has a similar taste and texture, and it's just as affordable as Alaskan cod. This lemon sauce for fish recipe can be prepared a day or two in advance, but it's best when done fresh. It's not a long process, so we suggest making it fresh on the day of the meal. If you don't have a fresh lemon on hand, you can use refrigerated lemon juice, but do be aware they often contain preservatives, so the flavor may not be exact.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in lemon juice, salt, pepper, parsley flakes, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir about 10 minutes, until thickened.
Arrange cod fillets in a single layer on a medium baking sheet. Cover with 1/2 the butter mixture, and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover with foil.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
Pour the remaining butter mixture over the fish to serve.
