Fabulous Fish: Lemon Cod from the Oven

I made this recipe just on a regular weekday a while back, but I thought I would share it today because I think this could be a great main dish for Christmas. Served with different kind of veggies and pommes duchess for example. The recipe is very easy and you don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to make something great. The original recipe is from Uit Pauline's Keuken. If cod is too expensive for your budget, you can also make this with any other white fish. Please excuse the not so appealing weekday picture. The fish really does taste awesome.

Lemon Cod from the Oven: (serves 4)
- 4 cod filets (or any other kind of white fish)
- 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp herbal butter
- handful of fresh chives
- olive oil
- dash of pepper and salt

Defrost the cod filets. You can place them under water or let them defrost in the fridge overnight. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees. Use some olive oil on a paper towel to grease the oven dish. Lay the cod in the dish and add a dash of salt and pepper. Then smear some herbal butter on the fish, sprinkle some chopped chives over them and lastly place the lemon wedges on top of the fish. Place it in the oven for about 15 minutes. If your fish is still frozen, add another 5 minutes.
