Bake until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with fork.
Turn oven to broil and broil about 3-5 minutes. Watch them closely, you don’t want them to burn. Broiling just gets them a little crispier.

Spicy Lemon Baked Cod

Fish – well what can I say NOT my favorite food. Unless its fish sticks baked or McDonalds Fish Sandwich with extra tarter, I will not eat it. In the name of eating healthy I am trying my best to develop a recipe that makes me like fish or at least tolerate it. What gets me most is the “fishy” taste. I love seafood of any kind but fish forget it, do not like it.

I can say I liked this and ate all of it! WOW! Husband was floored as was I.

It is free of dairy, egg, peanut, and tree nut. Be sure the food items you use are free of these allergens to ensure your recipe is safe for your loved one by reading all labels and calling the manufacture if needed for how it is produced.
