Easy Baked Frozen Fish Recipe

This fish recipe is super easy and you don't have to worry about thawing the fish first! Convenient for busy nights when you have no dinner plans.

That feeling when it’s 5pm and you have absolutely nothing planned for dinner and all your meat is still frozen solid. It’s happened to me more times than I can count!

Not too long ago, I bought some frozen cod fish in bulk. Since I can cook it without having to thaw it first, it’s become one of my absolute favorite “back-up” meals!

Easy Baked Frozen Fish Recipe


  • Cod or Tilapia filet, frozen
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temp
  • lemon wedge
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • dried parsley


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Grease a baking sheet (use a pan with raised edges).
  3. Place your frozen fish on the cookie sheet.
  4. Spread the softened butter all over the top of the fish.
  5. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemon wedge onto the fish.
  6. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley liberally onto the fish.
  7. Bake 25 - 35 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish), until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the center is no longer translucent.

I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out of my supply of fish!

  1. Oh I like that this is from frozen fish – that’s pretty much the only way I’ll buy it and cooking fresh fish can be such a gamble to get it right without it being under or over cooked!
