2 Atlantic Cod fillets
1 small spaghetti squash
1 tsp. thyme, divided
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the spaghetti squash in half then remove the seeds and discard them.
Place the spaghetti squash on the baking sheet with the skin side up. Sprinkle with coconut oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Flip the squash so the skin side is facing up on the baking sheet then cover with tin foil.
Bake the spaghetti squash at 400 F for 40 minutes. During the last 15 minutes of the spaghetti squash cooking, prepare the cod by patting it dry between two paper towels. Prepare a smaller baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil on a plate and stir together.
On another plate, combine the almond flour, salt, pepper and thyme.
Place a cod filet on the plate with oil, coating it well. Then immediately place it in the flour ensuring it is coated thoroughly. Place immediately on the prepared baking sheet.
Remove the spaghetti squash from the oven and remove the foil. Flip them so the skin side is facing down on the baking sheet to cool while the cod bakes.
Reduce the heat to 350 F. Bake cod for 15 minutes until slightly brown around the edges. Serve the cod on top of the spaghetti squash with extra thyme and lemon.
