This is a VERY simple dish with no pans to clean...gotta love it! It's also a very healthy choice, and if you happen to be on the Medifast plan, it fits perfectly into that. The recipe as written makes a lot of sauce, which would be great to serve over rice (if not on Medifast). I served it with garlic wilted spinach, using a garlic-infused olive oil. If you don't have that, feel free to add a finely chopped clove of garlic to the oil while it's gently warming, making certain not to brown the garlic. Browned garlic = bitter garlic!

Directions

  1. For the cod: Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Place the cod on a large piece of foil. Lightly season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with 1/4 tablespoon dill, and place lemon slices on top. Mix the mustard, broth, cornstarch, remaining dill and lemon juice in a small bowl (don’t make it thick, just a light sauce), pour around the edges of the cod. Bring up the sides of the foil, seal the package well and place in the oven for 8 minutes. Open carefully, remove the fish, plate it and drizzle with the sauce from the foil pouch.
  3. For the spinach: In a large pot, heat garlic oil over medium heat. Add spinach and lemon zest, toss to coat.
  4. Turn off heat and put a lid on the pot. Set aside for 3 minutes.
  5. Remove lid and once again toss the spinach. It should be bright green and just wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Plate with the cod and sprinkle with the chopped peppadew, if desired.
