About.com offers a good way to cook cod with its recipe for lemon garlic cod. First preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place 4 6-ounce pieces of cod in a single layer in a baking dish. Sprinkle fish with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Heat ½ tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small nonstick skillet on medium-low heat. Add 2 crushed cloves garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add juice of 1 lemon and 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, and remove from heat. Drizzle mixture over fish, and bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until fish easily flakes with a fork.

The Food Network offers a good cod recipe by Ellie Krieger, called Prosciutto Wrapped Cod. Begin by seasoning 4 5-ounce cod fillets on both sides with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Wrap around each piece of cod either 1 wide slice or 2 thin slices of prosciutto. Preheat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the fish fillets, and cook each three to four minutes per side, or until the prosciutto becomes crisp and the fish is cooked through.
