To bake cod fish in the oven, coat it with a crunchy ingredient, cover it with parchment paper, glaze it or cook along with vegetables, and bake in a preheated oven at 400 to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Add herbs, pepper, salt and citrus juice to enhance the flavor of baked cod.

To bake a crunchy cod, use crumbled crackers or crumbs of bread as the coating, and mayonnaise or whisked egg as the wet dredging. Then, place the fillets of cod on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with a cooking spray. Season the fillets with pepper and salt, brush on whisked eggs or mayonnaise, and layer the crumbs. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Baking cod in a parchment paper makes the fillets tender and moist. For this, place one fillet along with asparagus slices, lemon juice and garlic on one-half of the paper, and drizzle olive oil over them. Cover with the other half of the paper to make a semi-circle, and bake for approximately 8 minutes.

To make the glaze, use honey or jam along with citrus juice, dill, basil, thyme and parsley. Brush it on the cod fillets, and bake for around eight to 10 minutes.

When baking cod with vegetables, use ingredients such as steamed potatoes, chopped squash, green beans and kale. Season with pepper, salt and parsley, and bake in a glass dish for around 15 to 20 minutes.
