Servings 1 Piece


  • 1 Personal Filet of Cod 4oz / 5oz
  • 1 tablespoon of Honey Mustard or favorite mustard(Substitute: Soy Sauce)
  • ½ teaspoon of Sea Salt
  • teaspoon of White Pepper optional
  • A dusting of Old Bay Optional

Avocado Crema

  • 1 Avocado
  • Splash of Half & Half or Whole Milk
  • ½ teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Pinch of creole seasoning
  • Pinch of Sea Salt


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • The Cod should still have a chill on it from the refrigerator.
  • Room Temperature fish can become a health hazard
  • Pat the Cod dry using a paper towel (Important Step)
  • Cover Cod with Olive Oil, Honey Mustard (or favorite Mustard) & Sea Salt (Optional: Old Bay seasoning)
  • Place the Cod on an oven safe plate.
  • Place the Cod in the middle of the Oven
  • Roast the single portion for 5 to 6 minutes @ 450

Tip: If you're cooking more than one piece of Cod

  • One Additional piece: Add 2 minutes to the cooking time
  • Two Additional pieces: Add 4 minutes of the cooking time
  • Three Additional pieces: Add 5 minutes to the cooking time
  • There comes a point of diminishing return when increasing the cook time and all ovens cook differently. Think, less time is better until you get the hang of cooking the desired number of pieces of Cod in your oven. Just keep an eye on it. You can use your fingers to lightly press the Cod and see hows the cook is going in the oven. Should still feel somewhat soft when coming out of the oven.
