Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine paprika, Italian seasoning, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  2. Drizzle cod filets with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil. Rub spice mix on all sides of fish. Place in plastic bag or container and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place sliced potatoes in bowl. Drizzle with 3-4 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Arrange in one layer on cookie sheet. If desired, sprinkle with chili powder for a little extra flavor. Bake in 450 degree oven for about 20 minutes, until potatoes start to brown. Turn over and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  5. Drizzle peeled carrots with remaining olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in oven during last 15 minutes of potatoes cooking. If you like your carrots a little more well-done, leave them in the oven until they’re done to your liking.
  6. Place marinated fish on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in 450 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes, until flesh begins to flake. Serve with a fresh squeeze of lime, if desired.
