I am always looking for different ways to prepare fish that’s not only simple and low carb, but also packed with flavor so my whole family will eat it!

This recipe came at the perfect time when we were all getting tired of our usual fish recipes.

I had a whole bush of tomatoes growing out of control and I was trying to find different ways to use them up.

My husband decided to bake some sliced tomatoes with cheese as an appetizer and the result was delicious, so I suggested he put it on top of some fish!

When I tell you it was so amazingly delicious, I mean it!  So simple and delicious and that’s my favorite kind of recipe!

What is Tomato Garlic Baked Cod?

Fresh or frozen seasoned cod is topped with sliced tomato, shredded Gruyere cheese, chopped garlic and a drizzle of olive oil then baked until fish is cooked thoroughly and cheese is melting.

What kind of cod should I use to make this recipe?

You can use any white fish that flakes easily once cooked. My favorite is either rock cod or lingcod, but any white flesh meat would work.

Are there any benefits to letting the cod sit or marinate after applying seasoning?

If you would like a more flavorful fish, you can let the fish sit for 20 minutes after sprinkling the seasoning.

Do you have any cooking tips for the baked cod recipe?

  • Make sure you pre-mix the seasoning in a bowl first before sprinkling so it goes on evenly
  • Be generous with the seasoning as cod fillets are very delicate in taste
  • If you don’t prefer Gruyere, you can also substitute with other cheeses such as Parmesan or white cheddar.  Something with medium sharpness would be best for this recipe.
