Buttery cod in the oven

Easy to do, and most people like it! Serve with potatoes or rice, and a nice salad on the side!


  • 4 cod fillets, if frozen defrost them in the fridge first. I usually take them out the night before. You can use any white fish.
  • Butter, about 100 gram (1 cup) or as much as you like. There should be enough to drizzle on top of your fish and potatoes / rice!
  • 1 onion, cut in slices
  • 1/2 lemon (optional)
The baking tray is from Swedish Kockums Jernverk.


  • Heat up the oven to 175 C (350 F)
  • Add some butter in your baking dish, and put the cod fillet on top.
  • Sprinkle some salt on top, the sliced onion and the rest of the butter.
  • Leave in oven for about 15 minutes, make sure it is totally cooked but don’t let it overcook as is gets all mushy and falls apart.
  • Drizzle some lemon juice on top of you want before serving!

    Nice simple effective dish. I’ve done something similar but with Salmon, and added peppers and some garlic. Good one.

    I’ll have to try this sometime! I’ve used a similar technique to bake salmon, but for some reason I always fry cod.
