Tender, perfectly flaky cod fish, and baked with an array of spices. A simple oven fish recipe that transforms this simple white fish into a light and healthy weeknight dish. Make a yummy recipe with this oven fish recipe.

The fish do need to be as dry as possible before you add on the spices. What I usually do is pat them dry with a clean paper towel. This removes any excess water, and it will help give a crispy exterior.

Another good method of ensuring that the fish is as dry as possible is leaving it in the refrigerator for a while, at least 30 minutes. This helps the fish to dry out.

I usually use cod fish for this fish recipe, but you could use a wide variety of fish species. I have tried this recipe with haddock and plaice fish. Both times it has tasted just as good. It all depends on your type of preference on which fish you like to eat.

This is the perfect recipe for a healthy dinner. You could serve it on a bed of lettuce with a side of naan. Alternatively, serve with a side of oven-baked chunky chips. However, you choose to have it you will be sure to love it.
