Baked Cod with Pineapple Salsa

baked cod

This Mediterranean-inspired baked cod with pineapple salsa recipe is not only a beautiful dish to look at, but it is bursting with flavor. The herby oil rub that is used on the light flakey cod mixed with the fresh, sweet pineapple salsa is truly next level. It is also a bonus that this meal is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties. Cod is a great source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and has vitamins B12, B6, A, E, and C. Pair it with the healthy fat of avocado in the salsa and you got yourself a well-balanced dish. This is a refreshing meal that will leave your tastebuds, brain, heart, and stomach very happy!
