Cod With Lentils

Cod and Lentils

Fiona Haynes
Enjoy this rich and satisfying low-fat cod and lentils supper with some whole grain bread to mop up the juices. Feel free to substitute another white fish for the cod. Halibut is a good option, though quite expensive. Tilapia is a cheaper alternative.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup, roughly chopped onion
  • 1 cup lentils, picked through and rinsed
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup fat-free, low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 1/4 pounds cod fillets cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/3 cup freshly chopped parsley


In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat. Sauté onions and garlic until fragrant and softened. Add lentils, followed by tomatoes and broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes, until lentils are beginning to soften. Add fish and parsley, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.

cod with lentils, Member LindaBarrans

I added some garam masala to the recipe for that extra kick was really tasty with some plain white rice. Thanks for the excellent recipes I will be trying more out.
