Baked Cod in Foil


  • 2 tomatoes, cubed

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cubed

  • 1 onion, minced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • aluminum foil

  • 4 (5 ounce) cod fillets

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Combine tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, olive oil, basil, and garlic in a bowl and mix well.

  3. Lay 4 sheets of aluminum foil on a work surface and place 1 cod fillet in the center of each. Spoon tomato mixture evenly on top of the 4 fillets. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Place a second sheet of foil on top and seal the edges to make a parcel. Repeat with the remaining fillets and tomato mixture.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cod flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully unwrap the parcels. Spoon onto warmed plates to serve.
