Cod is a nice fish to work with. It keeps it’s shape, is versatile and is quick. This is a meal I would serve to guests. If your cajun spice is very spicy, you might want to reduce the quantity and add a bit of paprika for color. If you want it spicier you can chop up a jalapeño to the butter mix.

I served this with a 1/2 cup of rice and some broccoli. Made for a colourful plate and well balanced. What you serve it up with is up to you. Remember to have fun and make it your own.

Cod with Butternut Squash and Zucchini

This is a quick easy dinner. Cod is a great fish that is low fat with lots of protein.

As Chef Michael Smith would say, make it your own. If you don’t like Cajun spices use a spice you prefer. Make it with a different vegetable as a variation. Have fun.
