3 pounds fresh cod fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Juice of 1 lime
How to Make It
Heat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a roasting pan with vegetable cooking spray. Arrange the cod fillets skin-side down. Sprinkle with the chili powder, oregano, and salt. Roast 5 to 7 minutes or until the cod is just opaque and flakes when tested with a fork.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, swirling constantly, just until the butter begins to brown. Add the cumin and lime juice and continue to cook, swirling 1 minute longer.
Remove the cod from the oven. Set aside half the cod for another use. Drizzle the cumin-lime butter over the remaining cod. Serve.

Wow! This was great, we especially liked the sauce. After reading reviews I made triple the sauce, and we used it! I also made double the chili mix for the fish because we were afraid the fish wouldn't have enough flavor. I have a little left over but double the mix gave extra flavor that we liked a lot. This fish would also go great in fish tacos.
This was very easy and fast and was delicious... even my husband, who doesn't like fish, liked it. I think the calorie count could be correct, because 2 T butter is 200 calories, and that would be 50 cal/serving. The only other thing w/significant calories is the fish which is probably fairly low in calorie count. I served it w/couscous w/roasted veggies and Apple Orange Coleslaw... I would make this again.
Very tasty, quick and easy. I served the cod over brown rice (my only regret was not preparing more of the butter and lime sauce - it would've been great poured over the rice). I plan to use the leftovers in fish tacos. Nice flavor.
I followed the recipe as written and think this could be used to entertain guests or just to whip up a quick dinner. I plan to prepare again!
