Greek Sheet Pan Cod Dinner
The beauty of a sheet pan dinner is that typically, they’re pretty darn easy to throw together. It’s why we love them so much!
But what is truly special about sheet pan dinners?
Well, cooking everything together on one baking dish actually allows for more flavour to really penetrate everything. The End result is this quick, easy, super flavourful, and so delicious dinner.
And this Greek Sheet Pan Cod Dinner is no exception! It's the perfect flavourful sheet pan dinner to serve any night of the week. Promise this is not your average sheet pan dinner. So DELICIOUS, and the leftovers make for an awesome lunch the following day. Bonus!!!
What You'll Need
- Potatoes: Russet potatoes are usually the best for roasting due to their high starch content. Yellow potatoes, baby potatoes and fingerling are also great potatoes for a sheet pan dinner. However, I'm a strong believer in using what you have.
- Onions: White, red or shallots will do for this recipe. I really love shallots and they're what I used when making this sheet pan dinner.
- Cherry Tomatoes: You can use any tomatoes you have in your pantry. It's winter and I find the cherry tomatoes have the best taste during this time of the year in Canada. So it's not a deal-breaker to use other tomatoes in this recipe.
- Garlic: I don't think I have any dinner recipe that doesn't call for garlic it's so versatile and tasty. Don't leave it out of this recipe or the taste will completely change.
- Lemon: Lemon, garlic, and fish "the trinity of deliciousness" Fish without it just isn't the same. Fresh lemon is always preferred. Did you know you can eat the roasted lemons? You can and they're delicious!
- Mediterranean Herbs: Oregano, dill and parsley are all here! The only herb I recommend you must keep fresh is the parsley cause we're going to sprinkle it on after we're done baking. The dill and oregano can be dried or fresh it's up to you
- Olive Oil: It's not a Mediterranean dinner without it. Select a good quality olive oil. My favourite brand of Olive Oil is the Terra Delyssa Tunisian olive oil. It's high quality, great taste and affordable.
- Feta cheese and black olives. I chose greek feta and dried black olive when making this recipe. I prefer the taste of dried black olives vs the traditional kalamata olive. If you're new to olives these ones are great starter olives.
Quick and Easy Details for Making this Recipe
- Pre-roast your potatoes. Potatoes take a lot longer than fish to cook, so add the potatoes to the oven first.
- Marinate the fish. Add all the marinade ingredients into a medium bowl and allow the fish to rest while the potatoes are baking.
- Bake the Cod. Once the potatoes start to get soft, add the cod, tomatoes, shallots, and a drizzle of the marinade to the potatoes. Continue roasting for 20 minutes.
- Share the love. Serve by dividing the cod, potatoes, tomatoes, and shallots between plates. Spoon the feta and olives over the cod. Top with a handful of fresh parsley and dill.
- Eat and enjoy! with the people, you love, cause the best part ♥️
