“Lemony Cod with herbs and Roquefort cheese. I don't cook much fish, but I was in the mood for fresh cod, and came up with this recipe from ingredients I had on hand. My husband loved it! Enjoy!!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a bowl, combine tomato, garlic, herbs, white wine, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  3. Line a glass or ceramic baking dish (whatever size fits your pieces easily) with two pieces of foil, laid next to each other.
  4. Use the rest of the olive oil to brush the foil all over before putting the fish inside.
  5. Put one fish on each piece of foil.
  6. Spoon tomato mixture over each piece until covered.
  7. Lay a slice of lemon on each fish.
  8. Dab a very little pat of butter on top of each fish.
  9. Cover each piece into a little foil packet, but not too tightly.
  10. Bake for 20 - 25 minute.
  11. If fish is very full of liquid, drain as well as you can without removing the fish from the foil.
  12. Open fish from foil so that the tops are exposed very well.
  13. Crumble Roquefort cheese over the tops of the fish to cover lightly.
  14. Salt and pepper to taste.
  15. Broil fish on low under the broiler in your oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until a nice golden color appears on the fish, and the fish flakes well.
  16. Remove from foil to plate.
  17. Serve with lemon wedges.
