  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 4 oranges, peeled and sliced
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Tear off 4 large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Place one cod fillet on each of the foil sheets.

Season fish with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the scallions, coconut aminos, sesame oil, ginger, and the zest and juice of 1 orange.

Pour on top of the cod fillets, distributing the dressing evenly between the four pieces of fish.

Top each fillet with a 3-4 orange slices.

Fold the ends of the foil together tightly, making sure the packets are completely sealed.

Place them on a baking sheet.


Bake the cod for 12-14 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and easily flakes apart.

Remove the packets from the oven, and let them rest for about 5 minutes.

Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
