Lemon Dill Cod and Artichokes with Spiralized Potatoes

A fresh, zesty, and satisfying fish dinner made with a dairy-free cream sauce that you’ll want to pour over everything! Flaky cod, simmered artichokes, and spiralized potatoes are cooked with dill for a flavorful, simple meal.

Lemon Dill Cod and Artichokes with Spiralized Potatoes

I rarely make dishes like this, because they always seem daunting with delicate sauces. You know, the kind of fish dishes you order out at restaurants. But I love fish with rich, zesty sauces, so I experimented in the kitchen and here we are with exactly that!

Lemon Dill Cod and Artichokes with Spiralized Potatoes

Seriously, this dish has it all and if you love lemon and dill, you’ll be in heaven! The artichokes cook and slightly brown in the pan with all the juices from the lemon, fish, and dill for flavor in every bite. The artichokes are pillowy and complement the flaky cod.

The spiralized potatoes are the main event here and offer a light but filling base for the fish. It’s almost like eating pasta and fish! If you’re aiming for a lower carb meal, you could sub in with zucchini noodles here, but I really suggest the starchy savoriness of the potatoes here.

Lemon Dill Cod and Artichokes with Spiralized Potatoes

If you don’t love tart, I’d halve the Dijon mustard and maybe take a tablespoon off the lemon juice measurements, but other than that, this recipe is a crowd pleaser and one of those meals that you’ll remember and whip out when entertaining guests!

Also, you can sub in chicken here, tofu steaks, or even roasted cauliflower steaks! As always, make it yours.

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 pounds russet potatoes, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth + more for cooking
  • 4 (4oz) pieces of cod
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup non dairy milk (I used oat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained, halved, and patted dry (lightly squeeze to get out excess moisture)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped dill


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the potato noodles and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss and cook for 5 minutes. Add vegetable broth as the potato noodles start sticking to the bottom of the pan to help them cook. It should take about 15 minutes to cook the potato noodles. When done, set aside on a plate.
  2. Meanwhile, done with the potatoes, season the cod with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the cod and cook for 4 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-4 minutes until cooked through (if flakes easily, it’s cooked.) Set aside on a plate.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the lemon juice, almond milk, Dijon, and arrowroot.
  5. Immediately add the artichokes and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring, to warm up the artichokes and soak up the pan flavors and let brown slightly. Set aside on the plate with the cod. Add the cup of broth, bring to a simmer over high heat and scrape up the browned bits. Cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Pour and whisk in the arrowroot mixture into the pan and cook until thickened. Add the artichokes and cook for 2 minutes to let the artichokes soak up the sauce’s flavor. Then, nestle the cod back to the skillet, spoon over the sauce in the pan and stir in half of the dill, cooking for 1 minute until fragrant. Serve, garnished with remaining dill, family style with the potato noodles or divide potions onto plates.

I made this tonight and it was very tasty! I was curious about the Dijon mustard... the post mentions halving it, but then it wasn't listed at all in the ingredients or instructions.
Meaghan says:
Great catch, Sara! That mustard goes in after the almond milk, it's 1 teaspoon! Updating recipe today!
ROBIN says:
You mention halving the Dijon mustard but mustard is not listed in the ingredients. I’m assuming that goes in the sauce?

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣
