Almond-Crusted Cod with Snap Peas & Radish-Red Quinoa Salad

Crispy spring veggies, fresh mint and lemon brighten up this light-yet-hearty seafood meal.

Cod is such a versatile fish. It doesn’t have a very strong flavor, so it’s really good at taking on the other flavors in a dish. And it cooks up so beautifully flaky.

In this dish, cod is coated with almond flour and pan-fried in a mix of oil and butter. There’s just something about giving something a butter bath in a pan that soothes my soul…

The cod is served over red quinoa that has sautéed radishes and mint mixed in, as well as bright, crispy, quick-cooked sugar snap peas. Fresh lemon ties it all together perfectly.
