  • If you can’t find cod, use a different white fish like tilapia or halibut
  • If desired, serve with rice or another grain of your choice 
  • Use the thinnest asparagus you can find. Otherwise, it will take longer to cook
  • If asparagus is not in season where you live, try using broccolini or green beans instead
  • Add a couple pinches of red pepper flakes if you like a hint of spiciness
