COD SPRINKLED WITH LIME JUICE – PAPRIKA – GINGER – CUMIN – CAYENNE – GARLIC WITH A DIPPING SAUCE OF YOGURT – CILANTRO – MINT – GARLIC

I was pleased with the combination of spices in this recipe, and the chilled dipping sauce made with yogurt was good and also healthy. . .As an experienced cook, you can sprinkle the spices according to taste, directly on the cod, making the recipe quite easy as well as tasty. . .

For 2:

–Pacific cod fillet (one-half pound, size of 2 decks of cards)

–clam juice (one-eighth cup)

–lime juice (3 squirts)

–paprika (one-half teaspoon)

–ginger (one-half teaspoon)

–cumin (one-half teaspoon)

–cayenne (one-quarter teaspoon)

–yogurt (non-fat, unflavored, 3 tablespoons)

1 – For the dipping sauce, place all ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Stir well. Taste to be sure of enough salt and pepper. Chill until ready for dinner.

2 – Place cod in a covered baking dish. Add clam juice. Drench the cod in lime juice. Then sprinkle the spices, in the order given, on top of the cod. Finish with a few drops of olive oil.

3 – Microwave on high for 6 minutes, more if a thick piece of cod.

4 – Serve the cod hot, with the dipping sauce on the side.
