3 pounds fresh cod fillets (about 3/4-inch thick), skin on

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 lime, juiced

Orange Sweet Potatoes, recipe follows

Minted Sugar Snap Peas, recipe follows

Orange Sweet Potatoes:

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes


1 orange, zested

1 orange, juiced

2 tablespoons butter

Minted Sugar Snap Peas:

1 pound sugar snap peas

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Salt and pepper


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a roasting pan with vegetable cooking spray.
  2. Arrange the cod fillets skin-side down. Sprinkle with the chili powder, oregano, and salt. Roast 5 to 7 minutes or until the cod is just opaque and flakes when tested with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, swirling constantly, just until the butter begins to brown. Add the cumin and lime juice and continue to cook, swirling 1 minute longer.
  4. Remove the cod from the oven. Set aside half the cod for Day 3. Drizzle the cumin-lime butter over the remaining cod and serve with the potatoes and peas.
