Cod is a very mild tasting white fish. Salsa, particularly fruit salsas, add the perfect zing this delicate fish. Choose something like pineapple or mango peach. (The pineapple salsa I chose at my supermarket had a bit of a kick to it, whereas the mango peach salsa had a sweeter, more delicate flavor.)
Rub about 2 teaspoons of butter in a baking dish large enough to hold ¾ pound of cod.
Place the cod in the baking dish.
Spoon 1 cup of your favorite salsa over the fish.
Bake the fish in a 350 degree oven about 25-30 minutes. With a fork, test to see if the fish is cooked; it should be totally white in color in the center of the cod. It is should not be clear (see-through) but opaque.
P.S. For a great New England classic, check out my video on Baked Cod with a buttery bread crumb topping.
