Uncooked Pacific cod
1¼ pound(s), or halibut, about 1⁄2 inch thick, cut into fours
⅓ cup(s), fresh, finely chopped
Uncooked red onion(s)
¼ cup(s), sliced, finely chopped
Uncooked unenriched white cornmeal
Fresh lime juice
½ tsp, freshly ground
- Preheat the oven to 500°F. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray. Place the fish in the baking dish.
- Combine the basil, onion, cornmeal, oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture evenly on top of each piece of fish. Bake, uncovered, until the fish is just opaque in the center and lightly browned and crisp on top, about 10 minutes. Yields 1 piece of cod per serving.
