Oven-Roasted Alaska Cod Gremolata

A light and bright main course

Recipe Courtesy of Alaska Seafood

A gremolata is a classic Italian condiment consisting of finely chopped herbs (most use parsley), lemon zest, and minced garlic. Its herbaceous and citrusy notes make it the perfect topping for the subtly flavored cod. Oven roasting the fish preserves its integrity, but just be careful not to overcook it.


For the Oven-Roasted Alaska Cod Gremolata

  • 1/3 Cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 Alaska cod fillets (4 to 6-ounces each), fresh, thawed, or frozen
  • 1 Pound trimmed fresh asparagus or whole green beans
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


For the Oven-Roasted Alaska Cod Gremolata

Preheat oven to 450ºF. Place asparagus into a spray-coated 9 x 13-inch ovenproof dish. Spoon 2/3 of parsley mixture onto asparagus.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Place fillets on top of asparagus. Sprinkle cod with remaining parsley mixture. Roast, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes for frozen fillets or 15 to 20 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
