Skillet Broiled Cod is a quick, healthy meal for any night of the week. It’s prepared with corn and bell peppers, so your side dish is covered. The cod and veggies take only a few minutes to prep with a quick spin under the broiler. Total time is about 15 minutes.
Skillet Broiled Cod
I’m excited to share this easy recipe with you! It’s very similar to my Broiled Fennel Salmon For Weddings…or Weeknights, only it’s cod. And who doesn’t love cod? It’s very budget-friendly, especially if you buy it frozen and only use it when you need it. This ensures no waste.
It also has a neutral flavor, which means that whatever flavors you add, they’re going to really stand out. To me, this makes cod the perfect vehicle for the flavors you’re wanting to get across. Go ahead, get creative with the flavors! This one is Mexican-inspired if you use the cilantro and lime garnish.
In terms of timing, the only thing that rivals a quick cooking cod is my 10 Minute Pesto Chicken Gnocchi Soup. Be sure to grab the recipe for the next time you’re in a real hurry to get your people fed.
Ingredients you’ll need to make Skillet Broiled Cod (see full recipe below):
- 1 lb. cod filet (thawed, patted dry)

Kitchen tools you’ll need for this recipe:
Another great thing about cod is that it’s easy to get it right, and hard to get it wrong. Of course, you don’t want to undercook it. My favorite way to test for doneness is to make a small incision in the filet center. If it’s flaky and opaque (solid white), then you’re good to go. You can also use a meat thermometer and look for 130-135° internal temperature.
