Baked Cod

4 Servings
35 Minutes

This has to be the healthiest and yummiest meal on my page! I am slowly introducing myself to fish and seafood because it is so good for you - and it turns out I really like it!

This was my first time cooking cod and it turned out great. You could use any white fish for this recipe, such as tilapia.

The lemon vinaigrette and fresh herbs are so fresh and perfect for a Spring recipe. This meal is impressive, yet simple and healthy, yet filling. I will definitely cook this again!

This low carb high protein meal will inspire you to meal prep. Seriously, make extra because this is perfect for lunches!
