In this easy and healthy cod recipe, vegetables and fish are roasted on a sheet pan, then topped with chermoula--a classic Moroccan sauce made of lemon juice, garlic, paprika and fresh herbs. Ras el hanout is a Moroccan spice blend available at well-stocked supermarkets and online. Source: Diabetic Living Magazine, Fall 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Toss potato, cauliflower, bell peppers, tomatoes, jalapeño (if using), 1 Tbsp. oil, and ras el hanout in a large bowl. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring every 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, zest and juice lemons. Mix the lemon juice, cilantro, parsley, garlic, paprika, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the remaining 2 Tbsp. oil.

  • Cut several slash marks into the top of each piece of fish. Place the fish, skin-side down, on the vegetables. Drizzle with the lemon juice mixture. Roast until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon zest, if desired, and serve.
