Fresh orange juice 1 tablespoon
Cod filet, cut into large pieces 12 ounces

Freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Side Suggestions: Mashed Potatoes

    Wash and scrub 2 Yukon Gold potatoes. Place in a pot and cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until soft. Leave potatoes sitting in the pot with a cover on, but drain out the water, until ready to cook the cod (this will help preserve their heat). Add 2 tablespoons reduced fat milk and 2 teaspoons butter to the potatoes and beat mixture with an electric whisk until creamy. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
