  • 1 cod fillet (about 4-6 oz)

  • 6-8 asparagus spears

  • 1 cup mixed salad greens (e.g., spinach, arugula, lettuce)

  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced

  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 lemon

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh dill or parsley (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Place the cod fillet on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Squeeze the juice from the lemon half over the fish, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Let it marinate for a few minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus by snapping off the tough ends. Place the asparagus spears on the baking sheet alongside the cod.

  4. Drizzle the asparagus with half of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Bake the cod and asparagus in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

  6. While the cod is baking, prepare the side salad. In a bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.

  7. Drizzle the salad with the remaining olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Toss gently to combine.

  8. Once the cod and asparagus are cooked, remove them from the oven. Place the baked cod on a plate alongside the roasted asparagus.

  9. Serve with the side salad and garnish with fresh dill or parsley, if desired.
