The mildness of cod takes well to bold flavorings such as Dijon mustard and Creole seasoning. Lemon juice, added after cooking, brightens the flavor. If you can't find Creole seasoning, make your own: Combine 1 tablespoon paprika with 1 teaspoon each of salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, ground red pepper, and black pepper. Store in an airtight container.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients; brush evenly over fish.

Step 3

Place fish on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 17 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Drizzle juice evenly over fish; garnish with parsley, if desired.

I used Penzey's Trinidad spice (skipped the salt) and it was delicious. Super easy!

We didn't think this was very good. The consistency of the sauce was unappetizing and not particularly very tasty.

Easy and very tasty. Agree with other reviewers who eliminated unnecessary salt. It would have been overwhelming.

Iv'e had better cod from better recipes. I would not cal it "Creole". doesn't fit the discription. The mustard helped flavor it, but wasn't impressed w/ this one. Won't make again.

this is a solid recipe for a weeknite fish dinner. It was fast & easy to prepare, and quite tasty. I used Alaskan Cod filets & it took about 20 min in my oven. Served it with baby broccoli & garlic mashed potatoes. I will make it again, but cuz I like my food a bit spicer, I think I'll add some more red pepper to the creole mix (I used Zataran's)
