Baked Cod with Roasted Garlic Aoli

I got the idea from this months gourmet, but I couldn't find the fish they called for and I happened to have a head of roasted garlic in the fridge begging to be used. So ever the industrious one in the kitchen I improvised.

Baked Cod with Roasted Garlic Aoli
  1. 3 Cod fillets approx 6 ounces each
  2. 2 T olive oil
  3. 1/4 c mayonnaise
  4. 1 T coarse ground Dijon mustard
  5. 3 cloves roasted garlic, mashed

Preheat oven to 450. Oil the bottom of the baking dish. Lightly salt and pepper the fish fillets. Place fish into baking dish. Mix mayo, mustard and roasted garlic. Divide mayo mixture and spread over the top of each fish fillet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes until fish is just cooked through.

There you go one of those ridiculously easy dinners that is on the table in minutes. But I have to ask you, does it crack you up to have them call it "aoli" when it really is just mayo? At a fine dine experience its a way to charge a couple of extra bucks, but at home who are we kidding?
