Super easy
Make in 15 minutes
Serves 2

Preheat your oven to 175ºC/350º F.

In a mixing bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger and lemond zest with a pinch of salt and allow to rest for a few minutes. Add the olive oil and mix well.


  1. Place the cod fillet skin side down (if it has skin) on a large sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Spoon the ginger and garlic mixture over the fish.
  3. Fold the paper in half over the fish so edges meet. Create a seam by folding the edge onto itself a few times. Fold the edges on each side of the fish at an angle, to block any liquid from leaking through.
  4. Place the parchment paper in a layer of aluminum foil and seal.


  1. Place the fish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Garnish with cilantro and serve!
