Chili Cilantro and Lime Baked Cod
Quick cod dinner for one!

Dinner for one! I served this with red Thai rice and a spicy black bean/corn side. While I used fresh Pacific cod, any similar type fish will do.


  • 125g Pacific grey cod
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • lime zest


  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Add chili powder, onion powder, cilantro and lime zest in a bowl…mix well.
  • Place cod into bowl with spices, press down turn over and repeat.
  • Place cod into small greased (or sprayed with vegetable spray) baking dish, bake at 450F for 10 minutes. Fish should flake apart easily with a fork when done.

A few minutes before the fish is ready, melt butter in small pan with lime juice and cumin. Drizzle over fish just before serving.

Currently and quite possibly permanently living in the beautiful Comox Valley, Vancouver Island BC. I had spent many years living in Halifax but decided to opt for a milder climate a few years ago and wrangled a move here. I'm 54 years old and have been living with a spinal cord injury for almost 19 years now. As a result of that injury I am paraplegic, a definition I am not always comfortable with. I don't like being defined by what physical limitations I may have but I also don't get bent out of shape about it. Changing public perception of physical disabilities is a long process, one I have embraced and participated in through several volunteer programs over the years. I am an avid sailor (without a boat) and as retirement looms (yes I have continued working full time since recovering from the initial injury), I am pondering how to fill my time in a meaningful way. Traveling more, see the sights of this great country is high on my list. Increasing my involvement in volunteer programs that benefit the physically disabled and just simply trying to enjoy what life has to offer are my goals.
