Reviews for Baked Cod Piccata with Asparagus
"Had this recipe with a beautiful piece of cod loin. We greatly enjoyed the flavors. It was easy to make and cooked perfectly in the time allotted. I only had really skinny asparagus so I didn't roast them; instead, I made them following the TOH recipe for Spicy Asparagus. I served Roasted Greek potatoes with Feta which went perfectly (IMO) with the fish. Will repeat this dinner combo with the cod as the star of the show!!!"
"I had a lot of asparagus so I stuck it in the oven (with the water ) while the oven was pre heating. I also had a hard time finding salt free lemon pepper seasoning. I finally found it in the health food section of the store. It is a easy, fast good tasting recipe. You can hardly go wrong!"
"Great, I love chicken Piccata so why not Cod? If asparagus is out of season try broccoli.A definite keeper!!"
"I would make again. I'm not a great fan of fish, but this was pretty good."
