Roasted Cod with Moroccan Seasonings

I am not a big fish fan, but my current diet program calls for a lot of fish.  And I know its good for me, so I’ll give it my best shot.  But here is the challenge, cooking fish in a tasty manner using all fresh ingredients – no canned products, no store bough sauces.  Sure I can grill it and sprinkle lemon over it.  Boring.  This recipe was a hit,  The cod cooked up just right, the seasonings mixed well, and the result was a delicious dinner.

When I roasted the fish, I also placed some asparagus spears brushed with olive oil and salt in the pan and had them on the side.  It worked well.


  • 1 – 1 1/4 lb cod filets
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1/3 whole tomato
  • 1 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp ground red or cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Season cod with salt to taste, let stand in refrigerator for 10+ minutes
  3. Combine all other ingredients in food process and process until consistency of a paste
  4. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil, spray with olive oil spray.  Place code in dish, and spread the seasoning paste over the fish
  5. Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
