So simple. So delicious. So pretty. And, it makes for awesomely good leftovers!
  • 2 Tbs grass-fed butter or ghee, melted
  • juice and zest of one large lemon
  • ¼ cup flour of your choice (I have used tapioca flour, rice flour, and oat flour -- all worked well, but the tapioca flour didn't crisp up as much)
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • 1-1/2 lb cod fillets, cut into 4 to 6 pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Combine melted butter or ghee with lemon juice in a shallow pie plate or bowl.
  4. In a separate pie plate or bowl, combine the flour and spices.
  5. Coat the fish in the lemon juice mixture, then roll it gently in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  6. Place the coated fish on the baking tray.
  7. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes (if the fish is thick, it may take a bit longer), or until it's cooked how you like it.
  8. Remove from oven and sprinkle on lemon zest and parsley.
  9. Enjoy!
