I love using citrus fruits in marinates. Also to use them in preparing salads. Today, I am gonna share this simple and delicious recipe. It’s Baked Cod with Orange & Lime. You can substitute cod with other white fish, like Haddock. I cooked some pasta (Tagliatelle) to go with this dish with some toasted pine nuts to make the dish more interesting.

To make this dish, you don’t need a lot of ingredients. All you need are the following to make a meal for 2.

Voila, cette recette est tres facile a preparer! Bon Appetit!

For the Baked Cod with Citrus Fruits:

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp orange juice
1 tsp lime juice
4 slices of lime
2 slices of orange

a handful of pine nuts
salt and pepper


1. Preheat the oven at 180 ºC. Rub the cod with salt and black pepper and place them on a baking dish, pour 1 tbsp of the olive olive oil, orange juice and lime juice over the fish. Arrange the orange and lime slices on top.

2. Sprinkle some dill over the fillets and transfer the into the oven and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes depending on the size of the fillets. The fillets are cooked once the flesh look completely white and not translucent.

4. Meanwhile, cook tagliatelle until al dente according to the instruction on the packet in a big saucepan of boiling water. Drain and divide equal portion onto individual plates. Sprinkle over the toasted pine nuts and the onion. Then, placed the baked cod on top of the tagliatelle. Serve hot.

    I tend to steam or pan-sear my fish…I’ve forgotten how nice baked fish can be. Thanks for reminding me of that – and I love the addition of pine nuts. I will have to try this dish one of these days, though I still want to try your steamed fish recipe also. decisions…

  • Christy says:

  • [Arnaud] Thank you! I’m happy that you love it!

    [Christine] I like to steam and pan-sear/fry too! Not to mentioned the asian way of deep-fry and drizzle with sauce… yum!

    [Christy] Thanks for your comment! Cod is really one of my favourites oily fish. Try it out and let me know what you think!

    Leemei, I agree with Arnaud this dish is simply yummmmm.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    I tried the other day, we all like it especially the caramelised red onions and the intense flavour of the citrus fish. I am surprised at how simple and plain this dish was but yet it tasted so so good.

  • Russ says:

    I am assuming your instruction 3 is for cooking the red onions?

  • Russ says:

    cooking as we speak. will let you know how it turns out.

  • Russ says:

    The dish was delightful. The red onion I used was likely too big and tended to dominate. Will reduce the next time. Overall citrus flavor of the dish was very nice. May try a dill sauce for the pasta next time.

    • Great to hear that! Yes, red onion could be quite dominating, perhaps use smaller one or you could substitute it with white onion.
      Oh yes,t he sauce will go well with pasta! 🙂
