Baked Cod with Mushrooms and Kale

Labels: { , } | © 2015 |

This is a rather simple and delicious low-carb, low-calorie recipe that I found here. Cod fillets baked with a combination of mushrooms, kale, spring onions and cooking cream. It also works well with many types of fish. Pollock and tilapia make perfect substitutes.

  • 400 g Mushrooms
  • 3-4 stalk Spring onions
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 150 g Kale, chopped
  • 100 ml 15% Cooking cream or milk
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 600 g Cod fillets
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  1. Clean, trim and thinly slice the mushrooms. Cut the spring onions into rings, reserve 2 tablespoons of green rings for garnishing. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add in the remaining chopped spring onions. Cook briefly. Add in sliced mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in chopped kale and cooking cream, cooking until everything is heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking form.
  3. Rinse and pat the cod fillets dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle with lemon juice and coat with cornstarch seasoned with salt an pepper. Place them on the top of vegetables and bake in the middle of hot oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and garnish with reserved spring onions. | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 7/4/15 03:16

I am so excited to try this recipe. We have been working to get more fish and seafood in our diet, but I am always at a loss on how to prepare it, and I really am not good at it. This is a recipe I can make! Pinned! And, going to see if you have any other seafood recipes we should try!

Juliana 7/4/15 06:13

This sauce with mushrooms and kale sounds delicious with cod...which I have not had for ages...I like the creaminess of it!
Have a great week Angie :)

Couscous & Consciousness 7/4/15 10:13

Angie, this looks like the perfect dish for this time of year in my world. Mushrooms and kale are very plentiful right now, and I love this simple preparation of fish - for me I think it would be snapper :-)

Sue/the view from great island 7/4/15 20:19

I'm a huge cod fan, Angie, and you've inspired me with this recipe - so healthy and easy!

Nippon Nin 7/4/15 22:31

Very nice! I need the kind of dish often...healthy, simple and low calories. Great photos!

This would be good with any kind of fish fillet, very versatile recipe.

Geraldine Saucier 9/4/15 10:12

A nice healthy and tasty dish. I love fish:)

Sandra Mi 13/4/15 01:30

I'm not particularly a fan of the cod, but I like your dish together with shrooms and kale. I'll try it, but maybe use tilapia or salmon. It looks very appealing and delicious though. Awesome Clicks as always!!!

Roz Corieri Paige 15/4/15 03:32

Thank you SO MUCH, Angie, for sharing a delicious recipe for FISH! I always try to include more fish in our routine, but seem to revert to the 'same-old....same-old' since it is not my strength in the kitchen. I love cod, and always have . . . with the cream, I know that my husband will also devour this recipe!

claudia lamascolo 17/4/15 19:04

I absolutely adore this recipe and cant wait to try it!

Liz Berg 20/4/15 01:23

Just a few weeks ago, I got Bill to eat (and more importantly, enjoy) halibut. So now that white fish is not taboo, I'm going to have to try cod and a few others. Your baked version looks perfect.

dedy oktavianus 14/5/15 22:57
