I was shopping with Kelli the other day and the place we were at had a big meat truck there. We walked over to check it out. They had a box of cod, a big box, for $20. Kelli was immediately excited and asked for a box. She even started debating about getting two boxes. Hmm. The only real experience I’ve had with preparing fish is pollock and that I fry. I asked Kelli how she makes hers and she said baked in butter. Well I didn’t know that this sounded like a healthier option but as much as I love beef, sometimes it’s nice to have a change so I bought a box.
A few days later I called Kelli and asked for a recipe. She sent one but also left directions that said, “It’s a lemon butter recipe but don’t use lemon”. Okay Kelli….your recipe directions make me think that you’re my daughter!! Of course I read through the recipe only to find that I really didn’t read the recipe. Here’s what I had once I was all finished.
It didn’t look bad and it tasted amazing….But this ugly mess is what it looked like as it cooked. I hadn’t read through the instructions…only the ingredients.
It is only suppose to be swimming in half the amount of butter….I used dried parsley instead of fresh so should have cut that back in half.
This was super good and I’m planning on reworking the recipe now that I’ve tried it once. Cut the butter and the parsley for sure. Hubby loved this so I’m super happy to make it again BUT. I bought the box of fish to eat a little more healthy and ah…this doesn’t seem very healthy. I’m hoping one of you has a good recipe for cod that would be healthy. Do you? Are you willing to share? Please leave the recipe in the comment section if you have something that is both tasty and more of a healthy option.
If there are any curious minds out there. This is the recipe that Kelli originally linked me to.
