Cod tray bake

This one tray recipe is quick, easy to make and a tasty way to get 2 of your 5-a-day. We’ve used cod in this recipe, but you could use any white fish.


  • 800g / 1.8 lb baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 red onions, peeled and quartered
  • 1 courgette, cut into chunks
  • 250g / 9 oz. cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 4 cod fillets, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Add the baby potatoes, vegetables, garlic and dried basil to a large oven tray. Pour over one tablespoon of oil and toss together.
  3. Make 4 spaces on the tray and place the cod between the vegetables. Drizzle each fillet with the remaining oil.
  4. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, turning the potatoes and vegetables halfway through. The potatoes will be browned and crisp and the fish cooked through.
