You'll start with creamy Yukon gold potatoes, add the cod next, and stir in chard leaves that wilt and char without turning limp. It all gets dressed up with a quick olive salsa that adds richness, acidity, and a little kick, too. The result is healthy but full of flavor, and perhaps best of all, it takes only 15 minutes of hands-on time. Serve with a tart white wine or a medium-bodied rosé and enjoy the easy clean-up.


  • 1 pound small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved

  • ½ cup olive oil, divided

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 4 6-ounce cod fillets

  • 2 bunches Swiss chard, stems removed and leaves chopped

  • ½ cup pitted green olives (such as Castelvetrano), halved

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer, cut sides down. Bake until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, rub cod with 1 tablespoon oil and season with ½ teaspoon salt and remaining ½ teaspoon pepper.

  3. Flip potatoes and move to outer edges of baking sheet. Place chard and olives in center of baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil, and top with cod. Bake until potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes. Increase oven temperature to high broil and broil until cod is golden and chard is wilted and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Whisk lemon juice, parsley, shallot, mustard, and remaining ¼ cup oil and ¼ teaspoon salt in a small bowl; drizzle over cod mixture.
