Trader Joe's Breaded Cod - Easy Dinner
When I want something quick, easy and healthy for dinner I will often go to my freezer and get out some Trader Joe's frozen breaded cod fillets, which I always have in my freezer. They only take 20 minutes to bake in the oven and while they are baking I make a quick homemade (no mayo) tarter sauce and some sautéed spinach and tomato. It's so easy and super delicious!
This meal is jam packed with protein and vitamins - I love it and I always feel great after eating it.
Home made tarter sauce:
- 2 heaping tablespoons of sour cream
- 1 teaspoon of capers
- 1 teaspoon Siracha sauce
- chopped chives
- a squeeze of lemon
- 1 teaspoon horseradish
Just mix it all together - add a little salt and some garlic powder - yummy!
Then after I make the sauce I just heat a sauté pan with some olive oil, add some largely chopped tomato and let cool for 3 or 4 minutes. Then I add some fresh spinach leaves, add a dash of salt and sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Next I plate the spinach and tomatoes. Then I take the cod out of the oven and onto my plate, spoon some tarter sauce over the top, and Voila, a delicious and healthy dinner or lunch.
This is my go to meal when I want some serious vitamin power!
