Perfect Baked Cod

Weeknights like this, I don’t like to cook a fancy dinner. With my daughter that keep bugging me if dinners ready. This recipe is very easy to follow. And most of the ingredients is available on my pantry. Serve with some steam green beans or broccoli. I served it with a leftovers spaghetti and some steamed vegetables!
