Baked Cod with Tomato Sauce ~ How to Make Easy Healthy Baked Cod Fish


Tonight I’m making something a little
different for dinner. I’m Tess and come join me as I make easy baked cod and a
delicious tomato sauce. (intro music) Cod is one of my top three favorite fish dinners because
it is meaty, great flavor and affordable. I like it in soups, fried, poached and
baked and tonight I’m making baked cod in a tomato sauce. The sauce is packed
full of flavor and the cod is flaky, tender and delicious. Just a reminder
that you’ll be able to find this recipe, the list of ingredients and much more in
the show more section below. I’ve also included links where you can purchase
online some of the ingredients and equipment that I use in this video
recipe. If you have a chance please check it out. In a pan on medium heat I’m
adding in some oil, diced onions, bell peppers, lots of minced garlic, salt and
black pepper. Giving that a stir and cooking for two to three minutes. Adding in some capers, cooking and
stirring for another minute. In goes a large can of diced tomatoes and a good
spoonful of basil pesto. Stirring well. This is really starting to smell good! Also adding in a couple bay leaves for
some more flavor. Bringing this up to a simmer and cooking for another five
minutes. I have my oven preheating to 400 degrees
Fahrenheit. I transferred the sauce into a baking dish but if you’re using
an oven proof pan you can cook this meal in one pot. I’m adding in some olives and
I happen to have both kalamata and Spanish olives. I really like the
saltiness and texture that the olives add to this dish.
Now for the cod. Just placing the cod fillets on top and seasoning with a
little salt and black pepper. Baking at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20
minutes or until the cod is nice and flaky. I’m serving the baked cod tonight with
some of this cute lemon pasta bow ties that I found at Aldi’s. The pasta had a
very mild lemon flavor and added a little pop. It was a nice side dish with
the cod and tomato olive sauce. You could also serve the cod and tomato
sauce with some rice. The baked cod turned out nice and flaky and flavorful.
The tomato sauce was rich with flavor with the garlic and pesto and you can
really taste the saltiness from the capers and olives. If you’re looking for
something a little different for a fish dinner this is the one and I’m sure
you’re going to enjoy. If you like this recipe please hit the

  1. My kids were just asking about cod after we had the salmon. I love the colors here. 💕 And after our paninis, I have all these ingredients on hand. 😁

  2. The crust looks good in the intro that I saw.
    Love tomatoes and the bowties.
    Aldi is one of my most LOVED markets.

  3. Hello. That looked so very tasty. Very surprising ingredients. Never used capers and not sure if I have ever tasted pesto but big fan of olives. I would just love to have in the front of me right now…oh wait…it's kinda late…tomorrow for sure ! Very Yummy Tess. Happy Easter 👍😀

  4. I make that tomato sauce, in bulk, to freeze…it works for both fish and chicken……such a good video! Thank you, Tess

  5. That looks so good! Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen cod here in San Antonio. I'll have to keep an eye out for itl.

  6. Tess I’m Portuguese, and this meal is very similar to Bacalao, however I don’t eat cod. I love the recipe though

  7. Looks very delicious, Tess 🙂 Your videography is excellent as usual, too! I'm going to save this one in my favorites. Thank you for the links to your other fish recipes, and thumbs up as always, Norfolk Joe
