Mediterranean cod

Sodexo USA

Gaithersburg, Md.

Chefs at Sodexo created this dish for college and corporate dining operations, but it can just as easily fit into a restaurant’s Lenten menu. The combination of cod, olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and olives evokes the flavors and healthy cuisine of the Mediterranean region.


4 cod fillets (4 oz. each)

1 ¼ tsp. olive oil

1 yellow onion, sliced

1 zucchini, sliced

5/8 tsp. chopped garlic

4¾ oz. white wine

5 oz. cherry tomatoes

1¼ tsp. salt-free 17 seasoning

Slivered lemon peel, for garnish


  1. Hold cod fillets in half hotel pan in refrigerator. Preheat oven 350 F.
