Mediterranean Baked Cod Recipe


Indulge in the flavors of the Mediterranean with this simple yet delicious baked cod recipe, perfect for a nutritious weeknight dinner or impressing guests. The combination of Kalamata olives, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes adds a burst of flavor to the tender, flaky cod.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds cod fillets
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Greek seasoning
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped artichoke hearts (drained if from a can)
  • 1/4 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes (drained if in oil)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 lemon wedges for serving


  • – Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
  • – Dry the cod fillets with paper towels, place them on the prepared baking sheet, and brush them lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle the Greek seasoning evenly over the fillets.
  • – In a small bowl, mix together the Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice, and minced garlic. Spoon this mixture over the cod fillets evenly.
  • – Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 14 to 16 minutes. The exact cooking time might vary depending on the thickness of your fillets, so check for doneness by ensuring the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) when measured with an instant-read thermometer.
  • – Once baked, carefully transfer the cod and its toppings onto a serving platter using a large spatula to avoid breaking the delicate fillets. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with a lemon wedge on the side.

Cook's Notes:

  • – Using a fish spatula can help prevent the cod from breaking when you transfer it from the baking sheet.
  • – If you don’t have Greek seasoning, you can make your own blend or simply season with a mix of oregano, thyme, and garlic powder.
  • – Feel free to substitute other firm white fish if cod is not available.
