Puttanesca Baked Cod


12 ounces fresh cod (about 6 ounces per person)
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large pinch crushed red pepper flakes
3 olive oil packed anchovies
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed
1/3 cup pitted nicoise olives, roughly chopped
28 ounces crushed tomatoes


1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. In a large skillet heat the olive oil and cook the garlic and red pepper flakes for one minute, or until the garlic becomes fragrant. Then add the anchovies and stir until they begin to break down. Pour in the capers and olives and gently stir them in.

3. Pour in the tomatoes and the pepper and bring the liquid to a low simmer, stirring everything together. Allow it to simmer slowly for about 10 minutes.

4. Place the fish in a baking dish and spoon enough sauce over it to cover it completely. Bake for about 20 minutes or until it flakes under a fork. Serve over fresh couscous!

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

The sauce is so delicious that it is important to serve it with a side that will absorb and retain all the flavor. We love plain couscous, but orzo or rice would work well!

30 minutes for the sauce, 20 minutes for baking.

Naptime Reviews

A hit all around, though my daughter is not a huge fan of fish so she stuck with the couscous and sauce!
