Welcome back to another edition of Tasty Tuesday! Today we are heading into the kitchen to make a lovely fish dish using cod, or merluzzo. This dish is easy to make and chock full of amazing flavors. This is a dish to impress. The recipe today is for two, and prep time is about 15 minutes. Cooking time for this dish is 20-25 minutes. Ready to head into the kitchen? OK! Let’s go!
2 cod filets
1 stalk of celery
2 cloves of garlic
1 slice of a medium onion
1 TBS Italian parsley
salt and pepper
3 TBS of butter, divided into 1 TBS and 2TBS
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
dry white wine
Get out a baking dish, and using the 1 TBS of butter, grease your pan. Lay the 2 pieces of cod in the pan. Set your oven for baking at 350 degrees.
The next thing we are going to do is to finely chop up the celery, garlic, onion and parsley. As you chop these add them to a small mixing bowl. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
Stir this up so that the mixture is evenly blended.
Now take your mixture and cover the fish with it.
Slowly pour over the fish the white wine until there is about 1/4″ in the baking pan.
Now for the breadcrumbs. We want to melt the 2 TBS of butter in the microwave. I set the time for 20 seconds. Then to the bowl add in the breadcrumbs and mix until all the butter has been absorbed. It should look like this:
The next step is to cover the fish with the bread crumbs.
Now pop this into your preheated oven and set the timer for 20 minutes. Here is what the dish looks like as it cooks.
While my fish is cooking, I prepared jasmine rice and broccoli with carrots. The aromas in the kitchen are delicate and fragrant. Check your fish to see that it flakes, which is when this will be ready. Once all is done, plate it up and dinner is served!
Doesn’t that look good? As cod is not a fishy tasting fish, you will find that this dish really does not need lemon, but feel free to serve it with lemon wedges if you choose to.
Thank you for stopping by for another edition of Tasty Tuesday! Stay tuned for another exciting and easy to prepare recipe next week. See you then! Be well… ^..^
