Roasted Lemon, Bay, Garlic Cod
This is a really light dish - I've simply marinated the fish with a little
garlic and parsley and cooked it over bay and lemon so it picks up the fragrance.
Serve with a leafy salad and a good bottle of Chardonnay for a lovely lunch.
Preparation: 10 minutes + 10 minutes marinating
Cooking time: 10 minutes
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 x 5 oz cod fillets
2 lemons, thinly sliced
10 fresh bay leaves
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Mix together the garlic, parsley, olive oil, and
some salt and pepper. Rub the mixture over the fish fillets and set aside for
10 minutes or so.
Arrange the lemons and bay leaves on a baking sheet and place the cod fillets
on top. Roast in the hot oven for 8-10 minutes until just cooked and a little
charred. Serve immediately.
