Baked Cod Piccata with Asparagus Recipe

It takes longer for the oven to preheat than it does to prepare this delicious, good-for-you dish. While it’s baking, I throw together a quick salad. —Barbara Lento, Houston, Pennsylvania

"Great, I love Chicken Piccata so why not Cod? If asparagus is out of season try broccoli.

A definite keeper!!"
