This one-pan baked cod with asparagus and potatoes combines wild-caught cod with seasonal vegetables for a near-effortless dinner that’s ready in a snap.
Asparagus is available year-round, with its peak season during spring. This dish is one of my favorite options for a quick easy one-pan dinner which we enjoy on weeknights. However, it is elegant enough to serve at our get together with friends.
With a few staples of the Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, which we nearly always have on hand, and a little preparation and short cooking time, we can bring to the table an elegant dish.
The delicate and vibrant flavors and aromas of the asparagus, scallions, tarragon, thyme, wine, and lemon, scream “spring is here!” and brighten the flavor of cod. Baking the potatoes alongside with the cod and asparagus, makes this a complete dinner.
