Literally just finished eating this and had to share. Super easy to make, non-expensive fish, 20 minutes! The only catch is you have to like cilantro. And not everyone likes cilantro but cool people love cilantro.
While the cod was baking I stir-ed up some zoodles (I cheated and got them pre-noodled at Whole Foods) with some garlic, olive oil and some leftover pasta sauce. I also had one lone tomato left so made a little mini Caprese salad! I had dinner ready before I even took off my pants for the evening…
- 4 small Cod filets (or two long ones cut in half)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 a fresh lemon
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, lightly chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- Optional: ground sesame seed sea salt seasoning (I use EDEN brand and love it!)
Heat oven to 400. Line a shallow baking pan with foil.
Place cod pieces on foil and squeeze with lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Flip over and do the same to the other side. On this side also spoon on the chopped garlic and drizzle on some olive oil. Top with cilantro and sesame seed salt.
Cover loosely with foil and bake 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
