Alaska Seafood, yes it is delicious, healthy and easy to prepare. I simply purchased some Alaska cod at my local grocery store. Now I made sure that it was Alaska Seafood, and nothing else. Why? Because Alaska Seafood is wild-caught and never farmed, that’s very important to me.

Next question is why cod? I enjoying preparing cod because it is light and flaky, has a mild flavor and goes well with an assortment of veggies.
This particular dish has snap peas and asparagus along with grape tomatoes and seasonings. The flavors work alongside the Alaska cod to bring a wonderfully healthy meal to my table during the season of indulgences.

The cod fillets I used were approximately 3/4" thick. If using thicker or thinner fillets, you may need to adjust cooking time.
Also, use whatever seasonings you desire if you don't have dried roasted garlic & herb seasoning.
