Mexican Baked Cod

Another “from the pantry or freezer” meal that comes together quickly, is low in fat and calories and loaded with flavor. I use the sustainably-harvested frozen Alaska cod fillets from Costco. The fish is nice served with rice.

olive or vegetable oil
2 cod fillets (about 6 ounce each)
1 cup of your favorite salsa – hot, medium or mild

sliced olives
pickled jalapeno slices
fresh cilantro leaves

Heat oven to 375°. Pour a glug of oil into an 8×8-inch baking dish. Place cod in baking dish, turning once to coat the fish with oil. Pour salsa evenly over fish. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, or until fish is just baked through. (Baking time will vary depending on thickness of fish fillets.) Serve, topped with optional garnishes, if desired. Serves two.
