Lemon Garlic Cod with Roast Vegetables

This delicious dish marries sweet and briny cod with a lemony, garlic-caper sauce. A side of simply roasted zucchini and onion round out this elegant weekday meal. Our filet was particularly large (1 ½ inches thick). If you have smaller cod filets, you may want to knock a couple minutes off the overall cooking time.

It’s a very light dish. Perfect for a snack or if you’re on a diet. Personally I would add a bit more spice when seasoning.
