Roasted Pacific Cod With Olives and Lemon

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 5 minutes
    •    Cook time: 25 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •   2 pounds Pacific cod or some other white fish fillets (such as halibut)
    •   3/4 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
    •   1/2 cup mixed olives
    •   zest from 1 lemon, cut into strips
    •   1 tablespoon olive oil
    •   kosher salt and pepper
    •   1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    •   1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Place the fish in a small roasting pan. Add enough wine (about 3/4 cup) to reach halfway up the sides of the fish. Scatter the olives and lemon zest around the fish. Drizzle with the oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the red pepper.
  3. Roast until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with the parsley. Divide the fish among individual plates and spoon the olives and wine sauce over the top.
