Simple Baked Cod
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Step 2. Sprinkle both sides of cod fillets with salt and black pepper.
Step 3. In a mixing bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, lemon slices, fennel slices with olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Toss to coat.
Step 4. Transfer the mixture to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Nest cod fillets on top of fennel slices. Gently place a few saffron threads on top of each fillet.
Step 5. Bake in the oven, 15 to 20 minutes, until cod fillets are opaque and flaky. Squeeze extra lemon juice on top. Garnish with parsley.
