This baked cod recipe may just lure you over to make seafood at home more often! Codfish is mild and quick to bake and this vegetable baked cod sure takes pan-seared fillets to a whole different flavor factor!
2lbsCod fillets5-6 thick fillets (I used Costco frozen Atlantic Caught Cod)
1large onionthinly sliced
1/2cupoildivided for frying
Generously season and flour the fillets. Sear each side in 4 TBSP of oil until nicely browned. Set partially cooked fillets aside and wipe clean skillet.
In the same skillet over medium heat, saute the carrots and onions in 4 TBSP of oil until caramelized and soft. Add the ketchup and simmer until heated thoroughly.
Pre-heat oven to 375°F. In a 13 by 9-inch baking dish layer half of the vegetable mixture over the bottom. Top with fillets and the remaining vegetable mixture. Pour the boiling water over the top and bake covered for 15 minutes.
