Lemon Cod is a great protein source (21 g for 4 oz) with very little calories (96 calories for 4 oz). We buy the frozen variety and keep several on hand for nights that we get in a pinch and don’t have anything else to make! It defrosts quickly and cooks in minutes.
Here’s an easy and tasty preparation for lemon cod:
Defrost frozen cod in the refrigerator or at room temperature before cooking or buy fresh. Pat dry with paper towels once removed from the plastic wrap.
Place on a tinfoil lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice one lemon and arrange on top of the cod. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. This baked lemon cod pairs nicely with a homemade salsa or watermelon avocado salad.
With cod being such a light fish your portion will be larger than most other proteins. The exact portions will vary per person. Contact us for more details on your portions and macronutrient breakdown per meal/per day!
