What Can I Put on My Cod?

Are you tired of cooking the same old boring cod recipe every week? Do you want to spice things up and try something new?

Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we’ll be discussing all the different ingredients and toppings you can put on your cod for a delicious and healthy meal.

Herbs and Spices: One of the easiest ways to add flavor to your cod is by using herbs and spices. You can use dried or fresh herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil or oregano.

Spices like paprika, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric can also add a nice kick to your dish. Simply sprinkle them over your fish before cooking, or mix them in with some olive oil for a marinade.

Lemon and Lime: Citrus fruits like lemon and lime can add brightness and acidity to your dish. Squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice over your cooked cod or add slices of these fruits on top of your fish for an extra punch of flavor.


Another way to elevate your cod is by adding a sauce. Here are some options:

  • Tartar Sauce: A classic sauce made with mayonnaise, pickles, and capers.
  • Pesto: A creamy sauce made with basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil.
  • Salsa: A fresh topping made with diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapenos, lime juice.
  • Cilantro Lime Sauce: A tangy sauce made with yogurt or sour cream mixed with cilantro and lime juice.


Breadcrumbs can add crunchiness to your cod while keeping it healthy. Coat your fish with breadcrumbs mixed with herbs and spices before baking or frying.


Vegetables not only add flavor but also bring nutrition to your dish. You can roast or sautΓ© vegetables like bell peppers, onions, zucchini, and eggplant and serve them on top of your cod.

In conclusion, there are endless possibilities when it comes to what you can put on your cod. From herbs and spices to sauces and vegetables, you can create a unique and delicious meal every time. So go ahead, experiment with different flavors, and enjoy a healthy and flavorful dinner tonight!
