So let’s chat about this little dish. You know those dishes that are so epicly delicious that you want to lick the plate clean? Yes, that’s totally what I did with this cod. It’s bursting with lemon and the ghee and olive oil + herbs make it over the top perfect.
It couldn’t be simpler either. It literally takes 5 minutes to throw together and only 15 or so in the oven. What’s better than a 20 minute gourmet meal? Nothing, nothing is better than that my friends.
I also threw some asparagus on the pan but green beans, potatoes, broccoli, or romanesco would all be great! The drizzle of olive oil over the asparagus mixes with the ghee and creates an epic sauce.
Be sure to scoop the sauce off the pan as it’s the best part!
