Lemon Cilantro Cod with Peppers

This recipe is so light and fresh... it hits all the yummy check marks!


3 tbsps. Lemon Juice

3 tbsps. Avocado Oil (divided)

3/4 cup Cilantro (finely chopped, divided)

1/2 tsp Sea Salt (divided)

2 Cod Fillet

1/2 Red Bell Pepper (sliced)

1/2 Yellow Bell Pepper (sliced)

1 Tomato (diced)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

  2. In a zipper-lock bag add the lemon juice, 2/3 of the oil, 2/3 of the cilantro and 1/2 of the sea salt. Add the cod and massage the marinade into the fillets. Marinate them for at least 15 minutes or up to an hour.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and tomato and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the peppers are just tender and the tomatoes have released their juices. Stir in the remaining cilantro and season with the remaining salt. Remove from heat.

  4. Place cod fillets to a baking dish and transfer the peppers mixture on top of the cod fillets. Cover the dish with foil, or a tight-fitting lid, and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily. Divide the fish and peppers between plates and season with additional salt if needed. Enjoy!
