Get dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes with this recipe for Whole30, gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo broiled Parsley Almond Pesto Cod
Spring is just around the corner and I have come up with a super simple but yet extremely delicious broiled fish dish using one of the first herbs to come up through the ground – parsley. My favorite part about the entire thing is that this Paleo dish seriously takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish. It's just a bonus to me that my whole family absolutely loves it (and that cod is great for building my kids' brains!). A perfect dish for those days when you come home from work, you and your kids are cranky, and just want healthy and good tasting food to magically appear on the table!
It's really just a matter of putting a bunch of ingredients into a food processor, hitting the on button, pulverizing it, putting it on top of the fish and then baking it. Really. That easy.
Don't believe me? Watch my no-speaking video tutorial to see how ridiculously easy this is!
