Cod fillets, topped with a mixture of diced bacon, finely chopped mushrooms, spinach and garlic. The mild bacon flavors blend very well with the garlic, spinach, tomato and the fish. The dish is very easy and fast to prepare.


  • 6 cod fillets
  • juice of one lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 oz / 90g bacon, finely diced
  • 5 oz / 150g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • generous handful of spinach leaves, shredded
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into thin slices
  • ¾ cup / 180ml dry white wine
  • ½ tsp salt (or to taste)

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180° C
  2. Sprinkle the cod fillets with lemon juice and freshly ground pepper
  3. Set heavy ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. Cook bacon until lightly browned. Remove excess fat.
  4. Add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. Add garlic and salt, cook for another few minutes.
  5. Remove the mushroom-and-bacon mixture from pan, put in a container and stir in spinach shreds.
  6. Add white wine to the pan and bring to a boil
  7. Return cod fillets to the pan. Top with tomatoes and the mushroom, bacon and spinach mixture. Put in the oven.
  8. Cook until the fish is done, ca 25-30 minutes.

Cod Fillets with Bacon, etc.

This looks delicious. The bacon gives extra body to the fish.

it's a winner

I did this without the bacon and it was still delicious. Got rave reviews from the guests!

Preety good but how much garlic?

Good recipe and I enjoyed it. I paried it with a spinach salad which worked well. The recipe does not say how much galic to use. I tossed in a couple of cloves which seemed about right.


Thanks for pointing out that the amount of garlic was missing from the recipe. 1-2 cloves is about right - added to the recipe.


Delicious, used bruschetta spread in lieu of fresh tomatoes

I made this with haddock, using tomato-based bruschetta spread instead of fresh tomatoes (because I didn't have any tomatoes). It was great, thanx for the inspiration.
