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.
