Creamy, garlicky spinach is fabulous over fresh cod. Or turn it into a side dish alongside roast chicken or pork.


Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Uncooked Pacific cod

1¼ pound(s), four 5 oz pieces

Table salt

tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

tsp, or to taste

Chopped frozen spinach

10 oz, thawed and well-drained (squeeze spinach to remove excess water)

Fat free sour cream

¼ cup(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

¼ cup(s), chopped

Garlic powder

½ tsp

Yellow summer squash

3 cup(s), sliced, sliced, steamed


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Season both sides of cod with salt and black pepper. Place fish in prepared pan and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine spinach, sour cream, onion and garlic powder; process until smooth.
  4. Spoon spinach mixture evenly over cod in pan. Cover pan with foil and bake 10 minutes. Uncover and bake until fish is fork-tender, about 5 minutes more. Yields 1 piece of cod, about 1/3 cup of spinach mixture and 3/4 cup of squash per serving.


If you don’t have a food processor, combine the spinach ingredients in a blender or mix them together by hand.
