Yield: 2

Ingredients:
Baked Rock Cod
2 4 ounce pieces of Fresh Rock Cod
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 lemon

Mango Cilantro Salsa
1 mango; cubed
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 red bell pepper; chopped
1/2 avocado; chopped
3 Roma tomatoes; chopped
1 tsp salt
1 small lime
1 tsp pepper

Steps:
1. For the cod, preheat oven to 350 degree F. Drizzle olive oil all over fish. Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic. Bake for 10 minutes and then squeeze the juice of one lemon on top of fish.Bake for another 5-10 minutes, fish should look a little flakey. Rock cod doesn’t have a lot of fat on it so it will feel a little firmer than other fishes.
