Tonight I wanted to cook something fast, light and delicious since we were planning on going ballroom dancing and wouldn’t have much time after work to cook and eat. I found this recipe and modified it to my taste and really enjoyed it! Here’s what I did.
- 1 large fillet of Cod (USA Wild Caught — don’t go for that farmed fish and stay local!) Salmon or Snapper will do too.
- 1 minced shallot (an small onion will do though)
- 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil
- sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons of shredded ginger
- 1/2 tablespoon chili oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- For Broccoli as a side, you’ll need some fresh or frozen broccoli
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Brush the fish with the olive oil
- Place the sesame seeds in a plate and lay the fish on the plate to coat with seeds. Repeat on both sides (if there is no skin — no need to do this on the skin side) — set the fish aside
- Add the shallots, ginger, soy sauce, and chili oil to a shallow baking dish
- Add the olive oil to a frying pan and cook the fish on each side over a medium heat for 2 minutes each
- Place the fish in the baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes
- While you wait, fill a small pan with a small amount of water.
- Add the chopped broccoli to the water and steam (on high) for a few minutes to soften.
- Serve the broccoli with the finished Codfish
I hope you enjoy it!
