Reviews for Chili Lime Cod
"used the lime juice listed in the ingredient list instead of the lemon listed in the recipe. The chili powder gave the cod a nice flavor. Great recipe for when you need dinner on the table fast. I don't normally cook in the microwave but this will be a nice recipe to make in the summer when you don't want to turn on the oven & heat up the house."
