1 lb fresh cod fillets
1 lb asparagus, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 lemon, zested and sliced
Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
Place the cod fillets on the prepared baking sheet and brush them with half of the garlic-lemon oil mixture.
Arrange the asparagus around the cod and drizzle with the remaining garlic-lemon oil mixture.
Place the lemon slices on top of the cod and asparagus.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cod flakes easily with a fork and the asparagus is tender but still crisp.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, and serve immediately.
