    YANKEE CHEF: Healthy and satisfying broiled cod dish

    My kind of salad! I chose cod because it has the lowest fat content of any fish and cooks rapidly. Tilapia is also a great white fish for this recipe. But what I truly love about this dish is the beautiful presentation as well as a “feel good about yourself” result. Healthy and satisfying in every way.
