This is a nice dish that cooks up easily, and is very versatile; for instance, try a thick bed of spinach under the cod, or a layer of your favorite vegetables. If you adhere to the time and temperature as shown, your cod should be just cooked in the center; let it sit for a few minutes, and it becomes perfect! As far as the spices go, what you see here is how I make it, but I hope there will be experimenting going on!
