Cajun Roasted Cod

This fish dish is fast and easy to prepare if you have Cajun Seasoning already on hand. (If you don't, you can mix up your own in minutes). Because it contains sea salt, it's the only seasoning you'll need.

You can use this seasoning with any protein, so if you don't have cod, substitute shrimp, Alaskan halibut, chicken or triangles of tofu.

Balance the heat by serving this spicy dish with something cool.  I used my favorite fresh tomato: green zebras.

Their cool, clean, and slightly sweet flavor pairs well with the spicy Cajun seasoning. If you don't have fresh, ripe tomatoes (of any color) serve a green salad instead.

1 lb Alaskan cod, whole fillet or individual portions, at room temperature 
Cajun Seasoning

Preheat the oven to 375F. 

Lightly coat a baking dish with butter or extra virgin olive oil. 

Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the fish and place it inside the baking dish. 

Transfer it to the oven and roast until flaky and just cooked through, 
7 to 10 minutes for individual portions, 15 minutes or more for whole fillets.

Serve the fish on a bed of diced tomatoes or salad greens.
