Baked Cod To Die For

If you love fish the way I love fish – which is a lot – let’s cut to the chase: Salmon gets all the attention, like the coolest kid on the block, while cod is simply quietly there in the background being awesome. Flakey hunks of cod, rubbed with smoked paprika and garlic powder, sprinkled with sea salt then topped with sliced garlic and thinly sliced almonds. That’s right. You heard me right. If cod could get any more awesome, it just did.

You can keep the garlic at the end of you aren’t kissing anyone, or you can slide it off.
