Sweet, savoury, and delicious! Cod is a type of white fish similar to tilapia because of its tender and juicy texture. It is also packed with protein which is great for muscle growth and repair, as well as an excellent dinner alternative. The coconut sauce I use to season my veggies (and most of my savoury recipes) is coconut aminos. Coconut aminos is a source of liquid aminos very similar to soy sauce, but soy sauce often contains a high amount of sodium, even the low sodium soy sauce alternatives! However, the sodium content in coconut aminos is less than two percent per tablespoon, which makes it easier to be more flexible with your seasoning options. Coconut aminos is also slightly sweet, because it is derived from coconut nectar, so it is definitely a great seasoning alternative if you are craving a sweet and savoury dish. It also makes an excellent salad dressing! The possibilities are endless 🙂

Recipe for cod

1lb wild cod fillet
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp organic raw mustard
1/4 tsp sea salt
A dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp organic extra virgin olive oil

Recipe for veggie sauté:
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1/4 tsp Mrs Dash salt free spice blend
A handful of diced carrots, red onions, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, red bell peppers, and jalapeños
Asparagus (steamed)

Set your oven settings to broil.

Season cod with seasonings and let it marinate for 15 minutes.

When ready, line a baking sheet with foil paper and grease with coconut oil or butter. Place the cod in the oven and broil for 15 minutes. When ready, turn off the oven and leave the cod in the oven so it stays warm.

Next, place a skillet over medium heat and grease with 1 tbsp olive oil. Place veggie sauté ingredients in the skillet and mix until well incorporated. Reduce the heat to low and cover the top of skillet. Let it simmer for about 2-3 minutes.

When ready, serve with cod and steamed asparagus or other side of choice.
