Lemon & Garlic Cod

I purchased some very reasonably priced cod and an Italian lemon in lidl, and needed an easy and quick recipe. 
Delicious with steamed or roast potatoes, steamed veg, Sauerkraut or whatever you enjoy your fish with. The more varieties of vegetables you have, the more fiber points you will have. Cod is a great source of healthy fats and vitamin D (your granny likely drank cod liver oil to stay healthy)!
Lemon & Garlic Cod Fiber Points 8+
2 filets of cod (or any fish you choose) 
Lemon sauce
5 tbsp lemon juice (I squeeze the juice of a whole lemon and use that)
5tbsp olive oil
2tbsp melted butter
Mix together in a wide shallow bowl so you can dip and coat the fish.
1/3 cup flour (I used coconut flour which is lovely and light, but any flour you choose)
1tsp ground coriander 
3/4 tsp ground paprika 
3/4 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp salt
Mix together in another wide shallow bowl so you can coat the fish after you have dipped in lemon sauce. 
Sear the fish – lightly fry each side to seal (I had to look up what sear meant!) 2 mins each side. I use my cast iron frying pan so I can put that straight in the oven… If you don’t have one, then you will need an oven dish to transfer the fish.
5 cloves garlic crushed
Add the leftover lemon sauce and minced garlic, then bake for 10mins at 200c
