Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix lemon juice, 4 tbsp olive oil and melted butter in a bowl and set aside. Make sure it is big enough for you to dredge the cod fillets in it.

Lay cod on a cutting board and pat dry with paper towel.

Head 1 tbsp oil in an oven safe skillet. Dip cod in lemon juice mixture, shake off and put it in the almond flour mixture. Shake off and add to pan. Repeat with other fillets. Cook for 3 minutes on each side.
