Alaskan Cod Parmesan with Zucchini “Noodles”

This easy, delightful recipe features an Italian accent and a light (only 215 calories per 6 oz serving), springlike character.

Feel free to substitute Alaskan halibut for the cod, and Greek yogurt, avocado, or hummus for the mayonnaise. If you use one of those mayonnaise substitutes for the topping, it's best to add the topping to the fish after the broiling step.
