Mediterranean Baked Cod

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED COD

Recipe By Seafood Crate

Mediterranean baked cod is a low-carb, low-calorie, and gluten-free but it’s certainly not flavour-free! The simple sauce is made with tomatoes, capers, and spices for a zesty yet bright and delicate fish dish.

INGREDIENTS

  • One ½ lb cod fillet
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 10 garlic cloves, chopped
  • One ½ tsp organic ground coriander
  • 1 tsp all-natural sweet Spanish paprika
  • 1 tsp organic ground cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • One ½ tbsp capers
  • Salt and pepper
  • ⅓ cup golden raisins
  • Juice of ½ lemon (add more if you'd like!)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Fresh parsley or mint for garnish

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Prepare the tomato and capers sauce. In a medium saucepan, heat extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add onions, cook for 3 minutes until it begins to turn gold in color, tossing regularly. Add tomatoes, garlic, spices, pinch of salt (not too much) and pepper, capers, and raisins. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to medium-low and let simmer for 15 minutes or so.
  2. Heat oven to 400° F.
  3. Pat fish dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  4. Pour 1/2 of the cooked tomato sauce into the bottom of a 9 1/2″ x 13″ baking dish. Arrange the fish on top. Add lemon juice and lemon zest, then top with the remaining tomato sauce.
  5. Bake in 400°F heated-oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily (do not over-cook). Remove from heat and garnish with fresh parsley or mint to your liking.
  6. Serve hot with Mediterranean grilled zucchini, Greek potatoes, or Lebanese rice.

TIPS AND TRICKS 
  • Don’t omit the raisins thinking they’ll make the dish too sweet. They serve to counter-balance the acidity of the tomatoes and the capers.

I order weekly, and each and every time the quality is superb and consistent. The communication from the time or ordering to delivery is friendly and professional. Its been a real life saver at a time when in store shopping is so precarious. highly recommend

Very fresh seafoods: even the frozen ones. Excellent quality.

Great Customer Service

I have purchased from Seafood Crate for over a year now. Occasionally I have used the chat feature to check on my order and the response has been immediate and very helpful. The delivery service is so reliable and the food has always been carefully and safely packaged. This past week it looked like one part of my order had not been delivered. The person on chat worked with the delivery person to determine the status within minutes. The problem was on my end but Seafood Crate was so helpful in getting it resolved! Love the variety and quality of the products!
