Need a Weeknight Dinner Idea?

Weeknight meals can become…tedious. How is it with all the amazing foods available in the world, all we can think of to fix for dinner night after night are the same old things? If you’re yearning to shake things up and eat something different tonight, here’s a recipe for you. It features Morey’s Wild Cod Butter & Herb fillets which you can find in your grocer’s freezer section. These lightly flavored premium cod fillets are mouthwateringly delicious. Plus, you can keep them on hand in your freezer to prepare any time you want the taste of great fish.

If you can turn on your oven and boil pasta, you have all the skills you need to make Lemon Garlic Pasta and Herb Cod. Let’s get cooking!


6 Morey’s Wild Cod Butter & Herb fillets

1/2 pound dried thin spaghetti

3 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp EVOO

1 clove of garlic, minced

¼ tsp dried red pepper flake

Zest and juice from 1 fresh lemon

1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper

Fresh parsley leaves for garnish



  • One of the best things about frozen Morey’s Wild Cod Butter & Herb is that it can be cooked in various ways. You can thaw the fish per package instructions the night before, or if you like to be more spontaneous, you can cook them directly from the freezer. For this recipe, we used the baking method. 


  • While the fish bakes, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve 1/2 a cup of pasta water to use for the sauce before draining the pasta and returning it to the warm pot.


  • While the fish bakes and the pasta boils, heat butter and EVOO in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. 

  • Stir in the minced garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, constantly stirring, until fragrant. 

  • Add lemon juice, zest, chopped parsley, and 1/4 cup of reserved pasta water. Stir to combine. 

  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the lemon garlic sauce to drizzle over the cod fillets before serving and set aside.

  • Toss the drained pasta with the sauce in the sauté pan until thoroughly coated. Add the remaining pasta water to get your desired consistency. 


  • Divide the pasta into bowls. 

  • Top each serving with cooked cod. 

  • Drizzle reserved sauce over fish.

  • Garnish with fresh parsley leaves.

  • Serve immediately.
