This dressing is so good my son was dunking his broccoli in it.

2 pounds of captains cut cod loin.

You need a thick fish to bake  without drying out. Halibut is good too.

2 limes including the juice and zest

6 tablespoons oil

2 teaspoons honey

1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 jalapeno pepper

3 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

Puree the salt and garlic in the magic bullet

Add the pepper and pulse

then add the lime juice, zest, oil, honey and cilantro and pulse till smooth

Place the fish on non stick foil and season with salt and pepper

Place two tablespoons of the dressing over each fillet

Bake at 425 for 10 minutes

Turn over and put two more tablespoons on each fillet and bake for another five to ten minutes

Try to get a golden crust on each piece of fish but don’t overcook it

Put the sauce that falls off on the cooked fish

Serve with steamed broccoli and a salad with roasted tomatoes

This was such a great meal
