  • Oven

  • 8 oz plain, non-fat, greek yogurt
  • 18 tbsp walnut 1 cup whole + 2 tbsp chopped
  • ¼ medium cucumber diced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice fresh squeezed with zest
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt Morton's coarse
  • 1 lb cod
  • ¼ cup parsley roughly chopped
  • tsp black pepper



  • Preheat oven to 425° F.


  • Combine the yogurt, 2 tbsp chopped walnuts, cucumber, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 clove minced garlic, ½ tsp salt in a small bowl. Stir to blend and set aside.


  • Using a clean towel, gently press to remove water and pat fish dry. This is especially important if you're using thawed fish. Drizzle fillets lightly with 2 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil, set aside.
  • Pulse the walnuts (1 cup), lemon zest, parsley, garlic, salt (¼ tsp), pepper and remaining olive oil (3 tbsp) in a food processor until you have a consistency of coarse cornmeal.
  • Bake fish for 10 (thin fillets) to 15 (thick fillets) minutes.


In case you don’t have one, here’s a great food processor.
