Fish is a great dish to make when it is hot out and you want something light…especially when the summer has been a complete hot box situation. I love cod because it has very light flavor and can mold to whatever ingredients you put with it. It is also a fish that most people that "don't like fish" can eat because it isn't very "fishy". It's a great fish create when weaning someone into the amazing world of seafood!
Also...are you a lazy cook or someone that doesn't want to slave on the stove for hours? This dish only takes around 10 minutes to cook once you prep the ingredients. So, not only is it light, healthy, it is also fast and easy! ENJOY!!
