Alaskan Cod Parmesan with Zucchini “Noodles”

This easy, delightful recipe features an Italian accent and a light, springlike character. Feel free to substitute Alaskan halibut for the cod, and Greek yogurt, avocado, or hummus for the mayonnaise. If you use a mayonnaise substitute for the topping, it's best to add the topping to the fish after the broiling step. Recipe courtesy of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
