Ingredients

Ingredients:

For Coconut Peanut Sauce:

Instructions

  • Line a large baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil, spray with cooking oil or grease.  Preheat oven to 400F
  • Wash asparagus, dry in a clean dish towel. Line them up and cut off the tough ends.
  • Make sure cod pieces are very dry. You may have to dry them with a paper towel.  Line cod pieces in a line down the center of the baking sheet.   
  • Divide them evenly among each side of the pan, spray with your preferred cooking oil and then add seasonings (lemon pepper and garlic salt) to taste. (Honestly, I just lightly sprinkled them over all of the asparagus.) 
  • Make sauce by combining all sauce ingredients in a blender or with an immersion blender.
  • Brush 1 tablespoon of sauce on each piece of cod. Sprinkle entire pan with sesame seeds.  For a spicy flavor sprinkle cod with red pepper flakes (optional.)
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until fish is flaky and reaches an internal temperature of 155F.
  • (Your asparagus should be done too as long as you picked super thin pieces.)

Notes

  • Remember pick super thin asparagus so it cooks at the same time as the fish!
  • Dry your fish of excess liquid, this is important!
  • You will have leftover sauce that can be stored in the refrigerator and used for stir fry's, salad dressings, basically anything!
