Easy Oven Baked Cod

Easy Cod Recipe

by Sharon Maher

Fish needs to be spiced up in my family unless it has batter on it, otherwise it is bland and tasteless.  This is a quick and easy cod recipe and my twist on Jamie Oliver’s Tray Baked Salmon and Fast Roasted Cod.

I find Jamie Oliver has some great quick and easy recipes that can be easily adapted to suit your own tastes. I have been developing this cod recipe for many years to perfect it for my dear family's taste buds.  Of course, just like Jamie, my recipe does have a few chillies in it, but you can omit them.

Serves 4


200g blanched green beans (Runner or French)

20 cherry tomatoes

20 olives - optional (My son doesn't like them)

2 tbs olive oil

4  cod steaks

1 chilli, deseeded and chopped (for extra heat add 1 tsp of chilli flakes)

fresh parsley chopped (Another thumbs down from my son)

1 small jar of anchovy fillets

A twist of salt & black pepper


  1. Wash and tail the green beans and blanch in boiling salt water for a few minutes, drain and mix with olive oil, olives and fine sliced chillies
  2. Wash cod steaks, pat dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Lightly coat with oil and sprinkle with  parsley and chilli flakes.
  4. Preheat oven and roasting roasting tin to 225 C/425 F/gas mark 7.
  5. Cover the bottom of a baking tray with the beans, tomatoes and olives, place cod steaks on top. Add a twist of salt and pepper.
  6. Lay anchovies over the bean mixture and roast for 10 minutes or until fish is cooked
  7. Serve with new potatoes or a green salad.

Who needs ready meals, when you've  got Jamie Oliver in your kitchen and a little imagination of your own.
