Cod & Lemon Rice

Apr 15, 2021



2 lbs cod fillets


2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp avocado oil


Lemon Rice

2 cups long grain rice or brown rice

2 tbsp avocado oil

1 yellow onion, chopped

½ tsp minced garlic

Juice of 2 lemons

2 cups low sodium chicken broth (or bone broth)




  1. Wash rice well and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes in cold water. Drain well.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in large sauce pan. Add onions and cook for about 3 minutes until translucent. Add garlic then stir in the rice. Toss to coat.
  3. Add lemon juice and broth. Bring liquid to a boil, then turn heat to low. Cover and let cook for about 20 minutes or until rice is done (liquid will be absorbed and rice should be tender and not sticky).
  4. Remove rice from heat, leave covered for about 10 minutes.
  5. Uncover and stir in parsley.
  6. While the rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the cod fillets on the baking tray. Drizzle oil on fish, add lemon juice, salt and red pepper.
  7. Bake the cod in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Garnish with parsley.
