These fresh cod pastries make a refreshing lunch or dinner option any time throughout the year, regardless of season. Sauteed with lemon, garlic, and lime, the cod is then baked in a pastry bowl with goat cheese and fresh parsley until melty and crisp. Served over a bed of chopped apples tossed with vinegar and homemade or storebought hummus, this cod entree boasts a host of fresh and unique flavors, slightly sweet and just the right amount of savory.

I used fresh cod for this recipe and each piece flaked apart easily. The hummus was delectable and the pippin apple gave it a slight sweetness that was very enjoyable.
