This Sicilian cod fish recipe is another one of my mom’s recipes from when she was growing up. It was passed down from her grandma. And it’s delicious and easy to make. There are other ones out there, however they typically feature black olives. But I’m not sure if the difference in ingredients is due to where in Sicily each person/ group was located. Or perhaps it was because of money, or even preference. Though I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Ingredients for Sicilian Cod Fish Recipe:
- 4 cod fillets
- 1or 2 baking potatoes, (depending on the size) washed, peeled, and sliced
- 1 (14.5 oz) can whole tomatoes, diced or pulsed in food processor
- 1 red or white onion, peeled and diced
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions for Sicilian Cod Fish:
- Heat oven to 350.
- Mix flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder together. And then coat the cod fillets with the flour mixture.
- In a skillet, on medium heat, add just enough olive oil to sauté the fillets until they are lightly brown on each side.
- Remove the fish when they’re browned on each side. And in the same pan, add the sliced potatoes, and cook till almost fork tender.
- While the potatoes are cooking, in another skillet on medium heat, add olive oil and cook diced onion and minced garlic until onion is transparent, not burned.
- When onion is transparent, add diced tomatoes and season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Simmer and then place fish and potatoes in an oven-proof casserole dish. Pour the onion and tomato mix over the fish and the potatoes. Then bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked and tender.
I used red potatoes when I made this. But, the recipe calls for baking potatoes. However I just used what I had on hand.
