Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with either parchment paper laid on top or spray with cooking spray.
Place cod filets on paper towels to drain of water and pat dry. Place on baking sheet.
4 filets cod
In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, crushed almonds, dill, oil, salt and pepper and chili spice if using.
1 medium lemon, 1/2 cup crushed almonds, 1 tablespoon dill, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt & pepper, 1 teaspoon mild to med. chili spice
Spread each cod filet with a tsp or so of Dijon mustard, smoothing it over the entire top of the filet. Divide the almond mixture among the 4 filets, pressing it evenly into the mustard with your hands.Bake the fish until opaque at the thickest part, about 7 minutes for most cod filets (less time for thin filets).Serve with a green vegetable and lemon slices for a great low carb or keto fish dinner.
4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
WHAT KIND OF FISH CAN BE SUBSTITUTED FOR COD?This recipe is one of the low carb fish dinners that highlights cod, but any white fish could be used. I prefer the thicker filets like halibut and cod, but we've tried it with sunfish and crappies and it works just fine. I do live in the state of 10,000 lakes after all. Crappies (aka croppies) are just a bit more abundant here than cod and halibut!**Want more like this? Subscribe to our Sunday newsletter to get recipes, gardening guides and diet help.
