However, if you are opting to make black cod for the first time then we have this article exclusively penned down for you! It is no big deal to bake black Cod, but for the first-timers, here are some tips that you can keep in mind as you go along.

Before you begin with the recipes, here are some basics for you to learn! Cod is the first thing you should try, in our opinion if you are making seafood as a beginner. These are so easy and quick to get done and the best part is that you never practically overcook them.
1. Can you work with frozen Cod
If you can find fresh Black Cod, that is if you live near the coastal region then there can be nothing as good as that! However, if not, then you can opt for frozen Cod as well. However, you need to thaw it well to ensure that your fish tastes good and has a great texture. So to thaw your fish, you need to do so by leaving it in the refrigerator overnight.
However, if you lack time and have decided to cook the fish right away then we have a solution to that as well. You need to place the Cod in the sink and let running cold water flow over its surface for a while. However, there is one thing that you need to be careful about! When you are using running cold water, make sure that you leave the plastic wrap on! Directly introducing the fish to water will turn the flesh soggy and you will also have difficulty in baking.
2. What is the right temperature to bake your Cod
No matter whether the Black Cod is fresh or frozen, you should cook the fish until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. Approximately you will need about fifteen to twenty minutes to work on your fish but this can vary depending upon the thickness of the fillet as well. The best way to test is to use a fork and cut a slice or poke to check!
The fish will turn opaque when it is done. Sometimes it might happen that the fish sticks to the surface of the pan and in order to prevent that from happening, you can use slices of lemon, sprigs, and shallots at the bottom to create a layer or a barrier between the fish and the bottom of the pan.
3. Let's Sauce it now
Do you know what is the best part about Black Cod? You can cook them any way you want! The fleshy fish complements every flavor so well. Oil, cherry tomatoes, garlic, thyme, the options are simply endless. Herbs and white wine are a great combination and you can also add some asparagus to it too.
If you want something on the sides then you should go ahead with roasted potatoes, orzo, salads, and so on! Basically, whatever you find suitable to combine with your fish call it a meal!
