Easy and Healthy Oven Baked Cod Recipe, Greek Style. Cod is dipped in a lemon butter sauce, covered with a crispy bread coating, sauteed in an oven-safe skillet, then baked to perfection. So good!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a shallow wide bowl, mix lemon sauce ingredients including lemon juice, olive oil, and melted butter.
In a second shallow wide bowl, mix the coating ingredients including flour, spices, and salt and pepper.
Pat cod fillets dry with a paper towel. Dip the fillets in the lemon mixture, then in the flour mixture and set aside.
Turn large skillet onto medium-high and pour two tablespoons of olive oil into skillet swirling it around until skillet is covered in oil. Once oil is hot and sizzling, it is time to place the fillets in the skillet.
Place fillets in hot skillet and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side of fillet. You want the fish to be browned, but not cooked all the way through. Remove from heat. Add minced garlic to remaining lemon sauce and drizzle over fillets.
Place your oven-safe skillet (or place your fillets in a baking dish) with the fillets in the oven and bake the fish for about 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.
Sprinkle chopped parsley on top of cooked cod fillets. Enjoy!
Notes: An oven safe skillet is ideal for this recipe, however, you can easily transfer your pan seared cod to a 13x9 baking dish and then place the cod in the oven for baking.
