We are still talking about our healthy new year resolutions…Mr. Fearless Dining and I have been so good! We are making small changes like eating more sustainable seafood and fresh vegetables. Did you know you can make an easy, healthy dinner by making sheet pan recipes?
Did you know that it is recommended that Americans eat 8 ounces of seafood each week? Seafood from Alaska is a great protein choice that is naturally loaded with minerals, vitamins, and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
When the Alaska Seafood nonprofit asked me to write about Alaska’s Seafood, I was so excited. Here in the Bay Area, sustainability is a huge topic. Did you know sustainability is actually written into Alaska’s constitution?
Alaska has created checks and balances to ensure that their seafood is sustainable. Alaska works with many organizations at the state, federal and international level to set sustainable fishery management methods that uphold Alaska’s high standards. You can taste the difference in this Alaska cod recipe!
There are many types of Alaska seafood that you can eat, and it is sustainably caught! Just look for delicious Alaska pollock, salmon, crab, halibut, cod and more in your local markets.
I love wild caught cod because it is a light and flaky mild fish. I think it is one of the most kid-friendly fish to make.
Sheet Pan Meals
And now I want to tell you how easy it is to cook Alaska cod. There are so many different tasty ways including:
- Oven Baking
- In pasta like in this Alaska Cod Alfredo recipe
For this baked cod recipe, I decided to try the new trend called Sheet Pan Dinners. The concept is to put everything onto a sheet pan and bake it all together. You can do this with anything.
How to bake cod:
Cod bakes really quickly, so it is important to make sure your vegetables are cut small enough so that everything cooks at the same time.
As you can see in this baked cod recipe, I put the fresh cod and vegetables onto the sheet pan. I seasoned everything with olive oil, fresh lemon, thyme, garlic, and onion salt. As everything bakes together, the flavors mesh together and you end up with a delicious kid-friendly dinner.
I chose to include potatoes, carrots, and my favorite shishito peppers for this recipe. (I like a little kick, though shishito peppers are pretty mild. Only one in ten is spicy!)
- 2 pounds cod
- 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup carrots
- 2 cups potatoes, chopped
- 2 cups shishito peppers
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a sheet pan with non-stick spray.
- Place the Alaskan cod and vegetables onto the sheet pan. Sprinkle seasonings on top.
- Bake for 20 minutes until done.
