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

Serves 4

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 425F. 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.
