Delicious Baked Cod

INGREDIENTS

1 lb Cod fillet (cut into 4 portions)
5 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
5 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. melted butter
¬Ĺ cup Almond Meal
1 tsp ground Coriander
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp Salt
¬Ĺ tsp Black Pepper
5 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
¬ľ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

PREPARATIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix lemon juice, olive oil, and melted butter in a shallow bowl and set aside. In another shallow bowl, mix almond meal, spices, salt and pepper. Set next to the lemon juice mixture. Pat fish fillet dry. Dip fish in the lemon juice mixture then dip in the almond meal mixture. Shake off excess almond meal.

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a oven safe skillet over medium-high heat . Add fish and sear on each side to give it some color, but do not fully cook (about a minute on each side). Remove pan from heat. To the remaining lemon juice mixture, add the minced garlic and mix. Drizzle all over the fish fillets.

Bake in the heated oven until it begins to flake easily with a fork (7-10 minutes should do it, but begin checking earlier). Remove from heat and sprinkle chopped parsley.

Serving suggestions: Serve immediately with rice or quinoa.
