I found the recipe on the Weight Watchers website, and decided to try it (to use up some frozen cod in my freezer).  The original recipe made 4 servings, but since I was only feeding my hubby and myself, I adapted the recipe to make 2 servings (which is reflected in the printable recipe below).  I’m really glad I tried this cod recipe, because it had lots of great Asian flavors thanks to the sauce, but was really low in calories (or if you’re a WW member… 2 Smart Points).

Here’s how simple it is to make this dish:  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Rinse fish, then pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.

Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray. Place fish in dish, single layer. Bake at 425 degrees between 8-12 minutes, until fish is cooked through and is no longer translucent looking in the very center.  Baking times will vary based on the thickness of the fish you are using, so check it at 8 minutes, then keep an eye on it until finished cooking through.
