Saucy Spicy Baked Cod #Recipe @PegCochran #Giveaway

We've been trying to eat more fish since it is low in calories and good for you. Okay, I've been forcing my poor husband to eat more fish even though he doesn't care if it's low in calories and good for him!

Fish is expensive so we're sticking to the more mundane fish--no Chilean sea bass or anything like that. I've found that cod is reasonably priced and a fairly "meaty" fish so you don't feel like you want to go out for a burger or pizza after you've had it for dinner.

This recipe is super simple. I found it online somewhere and tweaked it a bit. It's quite tasty considering that cod is a relatively bland fish. I served it with a salad of massaged kale which I will tell you about in my next blog post--stay tuned!


2 cod fillets, (to serve two people -- ours were around 4 ounces each)
salt and pepper to taste
1 - 2 tablespoons olive oil
chopped garlic--I used around 2 teaspoons
squeeze of lemon juice
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce--more or less depending on your tolerance for heat

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Rinse fish and pat dry

Combine olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and sriracha together and stir



Season cod with salt and pepper and pour the marinade over fish



Marinate in a baking dish for 30 minutes (turn the fish over halfway through)

Bake for approximately 20 - 25 minutes until fish is flaky

   

This is a super easy and healthy weeknight dinner!

I am so excited that book #2 in my Cranberry Cove Series will be out on May 3! Have you pre-ordered Berry the Hatchet yet? You know you want to catch up with Monica, Jeff, Gina and the gang!



The entire town of Cranberry Cove is popping with excitement. Monica Albertson is baking cranberry goodies by the dozen and shopkeepers are decking out their storefronts for the first annual Winter Walk—an event dreamed up by the mayor to bring visitors to the town during a normally dead time of year.

But it’s the mayor who turns up dead during the grand opening ceremony, his lifeless body making its entrance in a horse-drawn sleigh. Monica’s mother and stepmother quickly become the prime suspects when it’s discovered that the mayor was dating both of them, and to make things worse, her half brother Jeff uncovers a clue buried near one of the bogs on Sassamanash Farm. Now it’s up to Monica to find out who really put the mayor on ice.

INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES!

  5. Hmm...I do have some sriracha on hand, courtesy of my daughter, and there's plenty of cod around here (this is, after all, Massachusetts, the home of the bean and the cod, and they have a gold cod hanging in the State House in Boston). I'll have to try this!

    The recipe does sound good but not a big fish eater.

  41. I'm trying again to leave you a comment. This area seems to like to make things difficult for me--
    How did anyone cook before hot sauce? Remember when you couldn't find any spicy hot foods except in ethnic home cooking? Now it's everywhere.
