Baked Cod Provencal Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless and skinless fillets of white-fleshed fish such as cod, haddock, and halibut (I used cod fillets)
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thing half rings
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (14-ounces) diced tomatoes in their own juice (or a similar amount of chopped fresh tomato)
  • 10 small black olives, pitted (preferably good quality and not from cans), cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste
  • Dried or fresh basil, parsley, oregano, rosemary, thyme to taste - any combination of your choice (I have 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil and 1/2 teaspoon herbs de Provence)
How to cook Baked Cod Provencal:
  • Rinse the fish fillets under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Cut into large chunks, season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with juice of 1/4 lemon and set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Cook the onion and garlic in a small skillet in hot olive oil, over medium heat, until soft - about 6 minutes.
  • Add the olives, tomatoes, remaining lemon juice and herbs. Stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, cook another minute and remove from heat.
  • Spread 1/3 of sauce in an even layer in a baking dish.
  • Arrange on top the cod fillets and pour in the wine.
  • Then spread the remaining sauce over the fish.
  • Bake in a preheated 445°F (230°C) oven for about 15 minutes.
  • Serve the Cod Provencal with boiled or steamed rice or simply with good French bread.
  • Goes well with dry white wine.
  •     Enjoy!
