Baked cod fillets served with a creamy lemon pepper sauce. An easy fish recipe ready in less than 30 minutes.
Sprinkle salt and freshly cracked black pepper over both sides of the cod fillets, then drizzle some lemon juice all over the top side of each fillet. Bake the cod fillets in the preheated oven at 200°C (390°F) for 10 minutes, or until cooked through (see notes below). When ready, take the cod out of the oven and sprinkle some lemon zest over it.
As the fish is baking, heat the cream in a saucepan. Add the garlic, peeled and halved. Stir in the lemon zest, salt and a sprinkle of black pepper. When the mixture reaches boiling temperature, add the lemon juice and lower the heat. Simmer for 8-10 minutes, it will thicken by reduction. Remove from the heat and take out the garlic cloves.
Plate the fish fillets and pour the creamy sauce all over. Add black pepper or extra lemon zest if desired.
