Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy


  • 1 1/3 pounds sustainably wild-caught cod (or other flaky white fish such as haddock or halibut)
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix lemon zest, chopped sage, and minced garlic on a cutting board until well combined.
  3. Arrange fish on a large casserole dish or baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over fish, and season thoroughly with salt and pepper. Spoon lemon-sage mixture over fish so that the top of the fish is evenly coated.
  4. Bake until fish is solid white, flaky, and cooked through to the center, about 20-25 minutes.
  5. Drizzle 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over baked fish, and serve.
