stovetop spicy cod

The lime juice on the Cod is a must. The acidity cuts through the spiciness and keeps the heat from overwhelming the fish. I try to keep a pretty low sodium diet and this gives you so much flavor that you don't even miss the salt. This is a fantastic way to use up leftover grains or rice.
