Roasted Asparagus & Cod.
Whew! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted! I’ll write a wrap-up post soon, a summary of sorts, reflecting on the last year of school, but first, here’s a couple of recipes I just tried. If they’re easy enough for me to make, anyone can make them 😉
Roasted Asparagus (makes 2 servings)
– 1 bunch of asparagus
– 3 cloves of garlic, minced
– ½ tsp of Italian seasoning blend
– Salt & pepper
– Fresh basil, shredded
Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Cut off the woody ends of the asparagus and place on a non-stick baking sheet (I just covered my baking sheet with tinfoil since it isn’t non-stick). Sprinkle the garlic and Italian seasoning evenly over the asparagus (I didn’t have Italian seasoning, so I used Costco’s Kirkland Signature Organic No-Salt Seasoning). Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 12 minutes until crisp-tender. Remove and toss with shredded fresh basil.
Lemon Pepper Cod (makes 2 servings)
– 2 tbsp of grated lemon zest
– ¼ tsp of coarse black pepper
– ½ tsp of sea salt
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 2 (100g) flounder fillets*
– Lemon wedges
*The recipe I adapted this from calls for flounder, which I didn’t have. We already had cod at home, so I substituted it!
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Combine the first four ingredients. Place fillets on a non-stick baking sheet (I did the same thing I did with the asparagus, using tin foil to cover the baking sheet). Rub garlic mixture evenly over fillets. Bake for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork (my cod fillets were quite large, so I ended up having to bake them for 12 minutes). Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
I didn’t really respect the “makes 2 servings”, as I used Costco-sized portions for both recipes so I would have leftovers! I also topped the cod with chives from our garden, and the basil on the asparagus was from our garden as well. I had mine with mixed fresh berries, but some sweet potatoes or other roasted vegetables would have been a nice addition.
Please let me know in the comments if you end up trying these recipes, and what you think of them. I will post more recipes in the future if you guys are interested, please let me know if you have any requests!
