This is the best recipe for cooking cod in a tasty but yet simple way.
Cod is one of the cheapest fish you can find at the supermarket. It’s very popular in the Uk (fish and chips) although it lacks of a distinctive flavor, it’s kind of tasteless!
This can either be a disadvantage in sense that by itself the taste is a six out of ten, or this could be an advantage as you can play with its flavor by adding different kind of ingredients to it.
This is how I cooked my cod filets and the results were amazing!
Check out here the recipe:
- 2 Cod filets;
- 400g Tinned chopped tomatoes;
- 1 Garlic clove;
- Hot pepper;
- 3/4 Parsley twig;
- 1 Teaspoon Capers;
- Olive Oil;
First thing to do is tout the parsley twig and the garlic clove in fine pieces.
Pour into the pan three tablespoon of olive oil.
Add the cute parsley and garlic to the an and let it heat gently.
When the garlic looks roasted, so a bit browny on the sides, add the chopped tomatoes, the capers and hot pepper.
Let the ingredients mix together for 5 minutes while stirring.
In the meantime, while the chopped tomatoes are cooking in the pan with the rest of the ingredients, take the filets and remove the skin.
It’s usually easy to remove the skin from the cod, try pulling with both your thumbs one on the meat and one on the skin to separate both sides.
If you have any problems you can try and use a knife.
Once the skin is removed, slightly flour the both sides of the fish.
When the chopped tomatoes have been for five minutes In the pan, add the cod filets and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
Turn the fish every minute and shake the pan so that the sauce won’t stick.
In the end adjust with a pinch of salt and a pinch of black pepper and the fish is ready to be served !
Wow, surely the best way to cook your cod! The dull taste of cod is contrasted by the acidity of the chopped tomatoes and the capers, creating fantastic flavor!
And the fish literally melts in your mouth!
