Broiling is an amazing way to cook fish, its super fast and the fish always stays nice and moist!

Did you know... Wild cod is an excellent low-calorie source of protein {a 4oz serving contains over 21 grams!}, and contains a variety of important nutrients. It's very low in saturated fat and is also a good source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Potassium, Phosphorus and Selenium.

Pairs well with homemade chimichurri , green bean bundles with bacon or a colorful side salad.
Adjust serving size: 


  • 5 oz wild cod - or similar white fish
  • 1/4 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin optional / omit for AIP
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper omit for AIP
  • 1/2 lemon sliced

How to Make:

  1. Preheat broiler and place the rack in the upper level of the oven – about 6-8" from the heat.
  2. Rinse and dry the cod, and then place it onto a baking sheet. Tip: If there is any brown color on the fish, I like to cut that part off as it tends to be a little fishy in flavor - that's just my flavor preference.
  3. Coat the fish with avocado oil, then sprinkle with a little salt, cumin & pepper.
  4. Place the fish in the broiler and broil for about 8-10 minutes - or until the fish begins to flake apart.
  5. Plate and top with a squeeze of lemon.
