Alright I am not the worlds best photographer, sorry. This photo does not do how yummy this dish is any justice. What’s even better than the fact that is it super yummy is that is it sooooo easy!! Here ya go!

Ingredients: This is for 2 people, adjust accordingly.

  • 2 portions of cod or other mild white fish (wild caught preferred)
  • enough butter to pan sear without sticking
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh lime juice
  • 1 whole ripe avocado sliced in chunks
  • a small handful of grape or cherry tomatoes sliced in quarters (or just chop up part of a small tomato)
  • 1-2 tbs of diced red onion (depends on how much you like red onion)
  •  1-2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
  • fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

I started by making the avocado salsa first. (It is really just a guacamole but the avocado isn’t smashed and the pieces are chunkier.) Slice open the avocado by piercing the skin with your knife and cutting through until you hit the pit then rotate the knife around lengthwise so that the avocado is sliced in half lengthwise. Twist the 2 halves apart, remove the pit then slice the flesh in strips lengthwise then again widthwise to form little squarish chunks. Using a spoon (you can use whatever you want, I think a spoon is easiest) dig the flesh of the avocado out of the shell and place in a bowl.  Once this is done with both halves, then squeeze lime juice all over it and mix gently so it does not begin to brown. Add in the chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper. Taste. Add more lime juice or salt and pepper if needed.


While that stuff all marinates and gets yummier, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Melt a tablespoon or 2 of butter. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Place the fish in the pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until flakey. As fish cooks on the second side squeeze in some fresh lime juice. (Maybe half of a lime)


The beautiful thing about using Cod is also the problem with using Cod….it’s super flakey and moist so it tends to fall apart.


The good news is that it might not look pretty, but its DELICIOUS!!! Once your fish is done, transfer each filet to a plate and top with the avocado salsa. Serve with a salad or any other Paleo side of your choice. Umm,umm, umm!
