    • 700g (1 1/2 lb) cod fillets
    • 450ml (16 fl oz) good quality tomato salsa, such as Discovery
    • handful chopped fresh parsley
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. Place fillets in a lightly greased baking dish. Pour salsa over fish. Sprinkle with parsley, salt and pepper.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Serve warm over rice.


    For a more sustainable choice, use Pacific cod rather than Atlantic, or choose something more local - such as Dover sole.

    Alternatives to cod:

    Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.

    Very quick, Very Simple, Very Nice.  -  08 Aug 2010


    I used cod that was about 2,5cm thick. It cooked perfectly in 30 minutes. My husband and I both said it was delicious! Took 5 minutes to put together.  -  15 Sep 2008


    This must be a really good fish recipe if I not only ate it, but had seconds! I don't even like fish!  -  15 Sep 2008
