Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes




  • 4 cod fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, half of the lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Roast the asparagus in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  4. While the asparagus is roasting, prepare the cod. Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, and the remaining lemon juice.
  6. After the asparagus has cooked for 10 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Push the asparagus to one side and place the cod fillets on the other side of the sheet.
  7. Drizzle the lemon-garlic mixture over the cod fillets.
  8. Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the cod is flaky and opaque, and the asparagus is tender.
  9. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.


Serve this delightful baked cod and asparagus hot from the oven, perhaps with a side of quinoa or a light salad for a complete meal.
