Cod with Caper-Mustard Sauce

Dress up plain baked fish fillets with a 4-ingredient sauce. This dinner takes just minutes to make but looks and tastes fancy enough for company. It’s low in carbs too! If there are sauce-avoidant children at the table, serve the sauce in a gravy boat rather than pouring it over the fish.

Makes 6 servings

6 cod fillets (6 oz. each)

2 TBL olive oil
