This baked cod is so tender and juicy it is baked in the oven with olive oil, butter, garlic along with spices such as fresh thyme, cayenne pepper and paprika. And of course, I can't imagine baking any type of seafood dish without using lemon juice which adds a beautiful citrusy flavour to the dish. This Baked cod recipe takes only 10-15 minutes in the oven for a quick fancy dinner.
