The perfect meal when stress levels go over the top. Omega-3s in the cod fight stress and improve your mood and almonds contain vitamin E and magnesium, which produce happy-maker serotonin. To top it all off, the apricots in the chutney reduce stress-making hormone cortisol.

Ingredients

Apricot Chutney: 
Almond Crusted Cod:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the chutney: Combine the apricots, lemon peel and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan set over high heat. Cook until most of the water is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard, oil, vinegar and pepper. Season with salt. Remove from the heat and reserve until ready to serve. 

For the cod: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and move a rack to the middle of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Stir the almond butter and olive oil together in a small bowl until smooth. Sprinkle the cod with the salt and pepper. Rub one-quarter of the almond butter mixture over the top of each piece of fish using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the almonds evenly on top, then place the fillets on the prepared pan. Bake until the fish is opaque and the almonds are brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with the apricot chutney.

Cook's Note

Make an extra batch of chutney and store it in the refrigerator to top chicken, sandwiches and BBQ. The cod fillets should ideally be 1-inch thick; if you have much thinner fillets you can fold them in half to become 1-inch thick.
