Baked cod in a light tomato sauce recipe, cod loin is baked 12 minutes and served with tomato sauce and mixed sauteed vegetables, delicious!
Cod is an awesome fish, it has a mild flavor, firm flesh and can be cooked a thousand delicious ways.
Here I brushed my cod loin with olive oil, seasoned it with salt and pepper, sprinkled some tarragon and baked it at 390°F (200°C) for just 12 minutes and it was perfectly cooked, how quick is that?
I served it with a mix of fresh fennels and parsnip, a mix of frozen peas and Paris mushrooms all simply sautéed in olive oil and frozen tomato cubes, very flavorful, dinner was ready in about 45 minutes.
I always stuff my freezer with bags of frozen raw vegetable mixes, I tend to use a handful of these or those and mix them with fresh vegetables. Specially, I always have bags of Paris mushrooms, diced tomatoes, chopped shallots, chopped parsley, green peas, these are a staple in my house. I find it’s an easy way to feed my family their 5 vegetables a day and it’s so handy.
