So let’s chat about this little dish. You know those dishes that are so epicly delicious that you want to lick the plate clean? Yes, that’s totally what I did with this cod. It’s bursting with lemon and the ghee and olive oil + herbs make it over the top perfect.
It couldn’t be simpler either. It literally takes 5 minutes to throw together and only 15 or so in the oven. What’s better than a 20 minute gourmet meal? Nothing, nothing is better than that my friends.
I also threw some asparagus on the pan but green beans, potatoes, broccoli, or romanesco would all be great! The drizzle of olive oil over the asparagus mixes with the ghee and creates an epic sauce.
Be sure to scoop the sauce off the pan as it’s the best part!

you have so many creative ideas for different recipes. Coating cod with herbs sounds like a very delicious idea. I don’t think potatoes would go as great with this recipe. The asparagus is absolutely perfect fit for your recipe,.
Thank you! Actually, I LOVE potatoes with this. The garlic butter coats them which is awesome in my opinion but I do love potatoes with just about anything 😉
This looks positively scrumptious. I love crusted cod so very much, big fish fan over here. Your photos are fabulous.
So sorry you were sick. i can totally relate to not wanting to work while sick. It’s the one time being a food blogger stinks.
I got scarlet fever when I was a kid. I just happened to be eating dinner when the worst of it hit. Fish, of course. I wound up in the hospital in isolation for a couple of weeks. On my birthday, no less. I couldn’t eat fish after that for about 10-15 years. Isn’t that horrible. I’m finally able to eat it again and loving every bite. Ha. TMI, I know. lol

The stomach bug is the worst! I had the regular flu and was flat out for almost a week but here it is almost two weeks later and I am still recovering. But I still can’t think of anything worse than the stomach flu. I’m sorry. 🙁 Your cod looks fantastic though. I am always on the lookout for new fish recipes…I will have to add this one to the menu plan!
