“I love this dish because I am a huge fan of seafood especially smoked cod. I am on a lifestyle program of low carbs so I came up with this meal from a list of things I can eat. I hope you like it. Tip: if you are on a lifestyle program then I believe presentation is everything, so treat yourself to a restaurant dinner every night--you deserve it.”
