I love a one pot dinner. It makes cleaning up so much quicker and on a weeknight there’s nothing I want more than extremely quick clean up. 

And a delicious dinner of course. This recipe ticks both boxes because it’s so tasty and filling!

Potatoes, tomatoes and chickpeas are roasted together on a baking sheet with pieces of cod (or you could use another fish if you prefer) until everything is perfectly cooked then olives are scattered over the top with some chopped parsley before serving.

You really don’t need anything else except maybe a few slices of crusty bread. We served it with ciabatta rolls and it was such a tasty weeknight dinner!

Why we love this baked cod recipe…

This is such a quick and easy recipe which barely involves any prep before it’s in the oven and you can sit down with a glass of wine and wait for your delicious dinner to be ready.

It takes just one sheet pan to make this recipe which means less washing up.

You can add any thing you like to this sheet pan including extra veggies or different herbs to make this exactly how you like it.

This is also a pretty healthy meal which you can feel good about eating on a weeknight as it’ll give you plenty of vitamins and minerals.

Sheet Pan Cod Ingredients

Baby Potatoes: Quartered and roasted until crispy.

Cherry Tomatoes: I like to roast them on the vine.

Thyme Sprigs: Scattered over the vegetables before roasting.

Cod Fillets: Or you could switch for another fish of your choice. Salmon or haddock would work well.

Chickpeas: Drained and rinsed.

Green Olives: Added to the pan just before serving.

Smoked Paprika: Adds a delicious smokiness to the dish.
