The very first time I baked cod was about ten years ago. I was looking through the Wall Street Journal’s weekend newspaper edition and stumbled upon a recipe for Baked Cod with Chermoula.

At the time, my husband and I set aside our weekends to cook together, often finding new recipes to try from the newspaper. We enjoyed our cooking and experimenting weekends and looked forward to them each week.

I’ve since made this Moroccan inspired dish many times and every time, I am reminded of the first time my husband and I made it together. I’ve scaled down the ingredient amounts to give you this single serving Baked Cod With Chermoula.

Chermoula

Chermoula is much like a pesto. It’s made with cilantro and parsley leaves, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and mix of spices.

You can either chop the cilantro and parsley by hand or add them to a food processor to finely chop.

I decided to take my traditional chermoula recipe and scale down the ingredients to create an easy chermoula recipe to serve one or two people. There’s no need to make a big batch of chermoula if you’re cooking for one. This single serving chermoula recipe makes the perfect amount.

In addition to fish, potatoes go very well with chermoula. Red-skinned potatoes hold their shape nicely when baked and are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals.

I chopped a few of the potatoes and scattered them on my lightly greased sheet pan. I placed the cod in the center and spooned the gorgeous green sauce over the top of the cod as well as the potatoes.

  1. I CAN NOT EVEN TOLERATE THE SMELL OF CILANTRO, MUCH LESS EAT IT. HOW MUCH WOULD THE TASTE BE CHANGED IF ONLY PARSLEY WERE USED FOR THE CHERMOULA? WOULD IT BE BETTER TO USE PESTO INSTEAD? SOMETIMES SUBSTITUTING PARSLEY FOR CILANTRO WORKS, OTHERS TIMES NOT SO MUCH. IT’S FUNNY — I HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH CORIANDER, WHICH IS FROM THE SAME PLANT. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

  2. Mmmm this cod & potato recipe looks so delicious! I’ll definitely be saving it to Pinterest and trying it sometime soon! Thanks for the inspo!

  3. I’m going to have to make this Chermoula the next time I make fish. This looks amazing, and now my stomach is growling. Pinned for later.

  4. Your dinner of baked cod with potatoes looks so delicious! I would love to follow your recipe and enjoy this yummy meal one day this month. Thanks so much for sharing it. 🙂

  5. Cod is one of my favorite fishes. I have been looking for more recipes to utilize this awesome fish. I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  6. Crazy thing. I just looked in my fridge and saw a tub of pesto, thinking what am I going to make with it? Chermoula from the way you describe it sounds like pesto. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Ohhh this looks so good! My daughter is a vegetarian turned pescatarian so I am always on the lookout for new fish recipes. Pinning this one for later!
