1 – Place cod in a covered baking dish with a little clam juice. Drench in lemon juice.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle pine nuts on top and in the clam juice.  Place 2 tablespoons of Promise margarine in a small, covered baking dish; microwave on high for 15 minutes; then stir.  Pour the margarine on top of the cod.  With a very sharp knife, slice a fresh lemon.  Then place the lemon slices on top of the cod.  Sprinkle parsley on top.  Microwave on high for 7 minutes.

2 – Serve the cod hot atop quinoa cooked with chicken broth (see search box for recipe).  I also served a salad that included chickpeas and broccoli florets; and squash casserole (see search box).
