Directions

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.
