Coat the baking dish with a little olive oil. Salt and pepper both sides of the fillets and place in pan. Sprinkle with basil, paprika, and a few dried red chili flakes. Slice the mushrooms and lay on top. Drizzle with a light coating of EVOO. Lay sliced lemons over mushrooms, cover tightly with foil, and bake at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Tips:
The cod fillets can be assembled in heavy duty foil and baked in the oven or on the grill. Close the foil tightly at top and sides, and don’t open until ready to serve to retain moisture.

This recipe works well with other fish choices such as Mahi and sea bass. Adjust the baking time based on the thickness of the fillet for best results.
