Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce and Oregano

Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce and Oregano

By 14/06/2012

Would you like a light, straightforward and tasty dish to prepare in advance?

Yesterday I was going out for the afternoon and needed to make something ready for dinner.

My favourite meals are the ones you can make in advance so when you get home all is done and you can just relax and eat!

I had some cod and potatoes so I made this bake adding passata (tomato sauce), oregano and Parmesan which gives it that typical "pizza" flavour and makes it quite interesting.
All the family enjoyed it!


  • Prep Time : 45 minutes
  • Cook Time : 50 minutes



Peel and slice the potatoes about 1 cm thick, put them in a sauce spoon, cover them with cold water, add  half a teaspoon of salt and cook them for 20 minutes then drain them.

Grease a large baking tray with some olive oil and lay the cod on it. Sprinkle some salt and oregano on the fish, spread the passata over it then lay the potatoes on top.

Sprinkle the Parmesan and the breadcrumbs over the potatoes and some olive oil.

Cook at 180 C for 30 minutes until the top is nice and golden.

    I love the breadcrumbs and Parmesan on the fluffy potatoes. Could be nice with new potatoes too I think.
