2 Tbsp. coarse Dijon mustard
(We used Grey Poupon Harvest Coarse Ground.)

1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon, finely chopped

2 tsp. unsalted butter, softened

1 tsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. water

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 garlic clove, finely minced

1 lb. cod or halibut, cut into 4 portions

1/4 Tsp. kosher salt

1/4 Tsp. freshly ground black pepper

olive oil cooking spray

1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges

This recipe was passed on to us from the November/December 2015 Diabetes Forecast magazine. It was good, but a little high in fat. We gave it a couple small changes and made this healthier version. Add a salad and a side dish for a deliciously balanced meal. If you need more calories, you can also double the serving size.

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Mix together the first seven ingredients in a small bowl, mustard through garlic. Then set aside.

3. Sprinkle fish with the pepper and salt. Heat an oven safe frying pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat the pan with olive oil cooking spray, add the cod and sear for 4 minutes. Then flip the cod over and sear for 2 minutes on the other side.

4. Divide the mustard sauce between the 4 servings of cod and spread over the top of each one. Put the frying pan with the cod in the oven and roast for 2-3 minutes. Serve each cod piece with a lemon wedge.

Yield: 4 Servings
