How long will One Pan Baked Cod and Veggies last for?
We recommend eating this meal in three days or less. Although it can still be good on day four, we don’t recommend more than three days because of the variation in storage temperature. You can eat for dinner and have leftovers for lunch. Reheat in the oven, and boom boom, bang, you’re good to go!
For optimum results, store appropriately in an airtight container (our Good Cook® meal prep containers are perfect for refrigerator or freezer storage). For easy reheating, store the potatoes and cod separately.
Can One Pan Baked Cod and Veggies be frozen?
This cod meal prep recipe doesn’t freeze well, and it’s best when eaten within three days. Potatoes don’t freeze well either, as they could turn mushy when reheating. If you do freeze the potatoes, don’t cook them thoroughly so they’re not mushy when reheated. Cod becomes bland when frozen and then reheated. So, sorry meal preppers, we don’t recommend freezing one pan baked cod. If you’re looking for freezer-friendly cod meal prep recipes, try our Crispy Fish Sticks and Baked Fish and Chips. Notice that the cod in these recipes have a batter, so that may be the secret to freezing-friendly cod!

When making one pan baked cod, you need a good-sized baking sheet so the fish and vegetables cook thoroughly and evenly at the same time.

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, toss diced potatoes into half of your oil and place them on the baking sheet. Roast the vegetables in the oven for 15 minutes. Feel free to enjoy the aroma coming from the roasted veggies. That’s one of our favorite smells! Next, remove the pan from the oven and add in the tomatoes and cod. Drizzle your tasty veggies with the remaining oil and seasoning. Bake everything in the oven together for an additional 10-12 minutes.
