Baked cod fillets with potatoes


  1. Wash the fish fillets well.
  2. Cut the potatoes in thin slices. Preserve them in a bowl full of water while you proceed with the rest of the ingredients. If you do not put them in a bowl of water they will gradually become green. Water is wasted afterwards.

  4. Mash the tomatoes and the garlic and mix together.
  5. Cover the surface of the baking pan with a baking sheet.

  8. Pour olive oil, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Bake in preheated oven (180 C) for 45 minutes.
  10. Serve warm.
