4 (6-ounce) pieces cod (boneless, skinless)
Sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
1 1/2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
Heat oven to 400 F.
Pat cod pieces with a paper towel and place in a baking dish large enough to hold the fish in one layer. Very lightly coat the bottom of the dish with cooking spray.
Season fish with a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place butter and olive oil in a small nonstick skillet. Heat on medium-low. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add lemon juice and parsley, then remove from heat.
Drizzle garlic mixture over top of fish. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
If desired, serve the accumulated pan juices on the side.
