Fish is a good for you protein so I do try to cook it as often as I can. The hubby loves salmon and I was very happy when Sitka Salmon Shares sent me a sample box to try. Also in the box were a couple of pieces of cod which is a fish I happen to love. I tried looking through my cookbooks for an easy baked cod recipe but I didn’t find any so I decided to just wing it. My result was a simple yet delicious butter baked cod which I served with my tumeric honey rice.

How Was the Easy Baked Cod Recipe?

Oh, it was so very good! The fish was of a very high quality and the butter baking just made it all the better. The spice blend on top gave just the right amount of flavor to the sweet, mild fish. The tumeric honey rice was a perfect accompaniment to the buttery fish. The rice is simple to cook in an instant pot.

The hubby may love his fish dinners like salmon with rhubarb and blueberry sauce but I will stick to meals like this yummy cod.
