This Baked Cod Recipe is bursting with flavor! These cod fillets are oven baked on top of grapefruit slices then smothered with a Grapefruit and Honey Glaze. Served with fresh grapefruit salsa and creamy coconut rice. POW!
Cod is served at my house on a regular basis. I love how versatile it is. It has a mild flavor with a flaky consistency. My favorite way to prepare cod is either poached or oven baked. The best part about cod is that it is affordable!
It is extremely difficult to find fresh fish in my area. So I buy Wild Alaskan Cod Fillets. They are flash-frozen and vacuum packed to preserve that fresh flavor.
Wild Alaska Seafood has lean flesh and firm texture due to the cold water in the natural environment. It is high in protein, low in saturated fat, low in sodium and one of the best sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Most importantly, Alaska’s fishing methods are anchored in strict conservation practices. That means our children will be able to enjoy Wild Alaska Seafood when they are adults.
Another food that I eat a lot of . . . Grapefruit.
I eat grapefruit every day.
I knew that I wanted to make a baked cod recipe with bright citrus flavor. So I went with my favorite fish and citrus.
This combination is unbelievable! The Cod is flaky and baked to perfection. The sticky Grapefruit and Honey Glaze brings a lovely sweetness. Grapefruit salsa adds a bit of tang. And the Creamy Coconut Rice brings it all together.
Don’t let fish intimidate you. Anyone can make this!
