Cilantro Lime Cod

The light taste of fish is often overpowered by heavy sauces. We’ve found marinades to be a great alternative. Some healthy oil means they hold up better to the heat of baking or grilling as well. A quintessential summer flavor for said marinade? Cilantro lime of course! And we’ve got the marinade ready-made, to boot…. We’ve complemented this quick delicacy with fresh green beans, garnished with red pepper, red onion and some cilantro for an easy and tasty dinner pairing.

Servings: 3

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


Green Beans:

  • 2 cups green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. minced red onion
  • Additional cilantro, minced red onion and avocado, to garnish


Soak a cedar plank in water for 2 hours. While the plank is soaking, preheat the oven to 375 ºFahrenheit.

Toss the green beans, red pepper, garlic, avocado oil, red wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper together. Lay the mixture out on a parchment-covered sheet pan. Roast for 15 minutes, then flip the vegetables over with a spatula. Roast until the green beans and are well roasted and top with minced onion and cilantro.

In a bowl, combine the Primal Kitchen Cilantro Lime Dressing and Marinade, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, cumin, onion powder and red pepper. Cut the cod filet into 2-3 portions and gently toss them in the sauce. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes.

Fire up your grill. The fish will need to cook over indirect heat. Take the cedar plank out of the water and place on a paper towel. Place the plank on the grill for 2 minutes. Flip the plank over and place the fish portions on top of the plank and spoon and remaining marinade over the top. Cover the lid and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the fish is firm and opaque. The cooking time may vary slightly depending on the thickness and size of the portions of fish. Top with chopped cilantro, minced onion and avocado slices and serve alongside the green beans.

  1. Cannot WAIT to try this out! Love the idea of roasting the green beans. I have a bottle of cilantro lime dressing on hand and cod is one of my faves that I haven’t made in awhile. I’ll definitely be trying this out soon! Thanks for the inspo.

  2. Dear Mark,
    I started on the primal path over 5 years ago, and am very thankful for all the information you have provided to contribute to my healthy lifestyle. I realize that all persons need to have an income, however it is very disheartening to see that every recipe posted on the site, contains pre-made “primal” ingredients that need to be purchased from the website. I have even found numerous recipes that contain peanuts (legume… right?).

    I completely improved my dietary routine using this site, and have been very dismayed over the past 2 years, that everything is focused on “selling” items. The experience of cooking from real food sources is what made the difference in my life and lifestyle. Making the commitment to oneself, in the preparation of food, and slowing down this hectic world is what resonated with me in your primal blueprint. It seems as though this message has once again been lost.
    Sincerely, a truly committed follower.

  3. For those of us in UK that cant buy your products an alternative suggestion would be really helpful in the recipe please. ?
