Baked Cod with Olive-Lemon Butter
The flavor of this dish is greatly dependent on the type of olive used, it is best made with Mediterranean-style marinated olives such as kalamata olives. Serve with rice and steamed vegetables for a light dinner.
4 (6-ounce) cod fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
- Season cod with salt and pepper and place in a shallow baking dish, large enough to hold fish in one layer. Combine olives, butter, lemon juice and chives. Mix well and pour over fish. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 12 minutes. Serve warm.
