Baked Fish with Tangy Lemon Garlic Cream Cheese Sauce

Author: Leah Wood via Kelly the Kitchen Kop


  • Cod fillets Try to find preservative-free cod!
  • 8 ounce organic cream cheese
  • Juice from 1 zested lemon
  • 2-3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • Sea salt and pepper lemon pepper would be great, too


  • Butter a 9×13 glass baking dish and place cod fillets in the bottom, cutting pieces to be evenly sized.  (So they're all done about the same time.)  Season fillets with sea salt and pepper (lemon pepper is really good!) Then mix together with your stick blender: cream cheese, salt and pepper to your taste, garlic and the zest and juice from your one lemon.  Spread the cream cheese mixture over the fillets and bake at 425* until fish is flaky (done!) – about 30 minutes.
  • *This recipe is for about 4 to 6 fillets, if you are cooking a larger amount of fish, or want it extra creamy, you may want to double the cream cheese recipe.  I made it with 2-8 oz. packages, but that was too much and we ended up eating the leftovers as a veggie dip – so good!
