You can use this recipe for any compliant white fish fillet. It's very easy to make. I found the recipe on the Whole Foods Website. They used Tilapia, but as an Explorer I use Cod.

  • Type O Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Entree
  • 1 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 Cod fillets, skinless
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves (fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • Zest from 2 lemons
How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Sprinkle shallot in the bottom of a baking dish large enough to hold the fish in a single layer
  3. Rub each fillet all over with olive oil
  4. Place fillets on top of shallots in the baking dish
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until flesh is opaque and flakes with a fork
  6. While fish is cooking combine thyme, salt and zest in a small bowl
  7. When fish is done sprinkle a little of the thyme mix over each fish
  8. Serve immediately
    If you have left over thyme mix, its great on green salads or cooked veggies
