Sweet & Savory Tuesday ~~ Zesty Cod Fillets


  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. diced garlic
  • 2 - 6 oz. cod fillets
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • salt, optional

  • Saute garlic in olive oil.
  • Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.
  • Cook 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
  • Pour one Tbsp. of the lime juice over fillets.
  • Mix cumin and chili powder together and sprinkle 1/2 of mixture over fillets.
  • Cook 3-4 minutes over medium heat.
  • Flip fillets to other side and pour remaining lime juice over fillets.
  • Sprinkle remaining cumin and chili powder mixture on top of fillets.
  • Cook 2-3 minutes or until cod fillets flake easily.
  • Serve over rice and with garnishes of your choice.  I used sliced tomatoes, red bell pepper slices, and sliced hard boil eggs dusted with hot Hungarian paprika.

Sometimes it's a great adventure and lots of fun to experiment with new spice combinations when preparing your entree, especially fish!
