Cod is a an easy summer go to that everyone should try at one point or another. Cooking dinner every night can be a hassle and sometimes leftovers just won’t cut it. Today.com not only shared an awesome Cod Filet Dish but the leftover fish from this meal can be used to make another recipe. What is better than two dinners coming from one?
COD FILET DISH
- Two, 12 ounce Cod filet
- 1 orange, cut thinly into rounds
- 1 lime, cut thinly into rounds
- 1 lemon, cut thinly into rounds
- 1 onion, finely sliced
- ½ cup of fresh parsley leaves
- ½ teaspoon of ground coriander(cilantro)
- ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- Baking dish
The oven first needs to be preheated to 375 degrees; this gives you the perfect opportunity to use butter to grease the baking dish. Take the finely sliced onion and place it on the bottom of the baking dish. Place the Cod filets on top of the onion.
Once the filets are in the baking dish, season them with freshly ground black pepper, coriander, and salt. Take the parsley leaves and place them on top of the filets. Place the orange, lemon, and lime slices in an alternate pattern on top of the filets to ensure that the juices are evenly distributed. Top it off with the extra virgin olive oil.
Place the baking dish into the oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes. The fish should flake easily when it is touched with the fork. Once the filet has cooled a little, remove the slices of citrus and serve the cod.
The best part about this recipe is the fact that you can use the leftover Cod to make other recipes. Start off with the Citrus Baked Cod on Monday night,and use the extra filets to make dinner the next night.
- Leftover Cod, or you can make a new batch
- Cabbage Slaw Ingredients
- Chipotle Crema Sauce
Making the Chipotle Crema Sauce
Take the small bowl and add all of the ingredients for the Crema Sauce. Whisk the ingredients together, cover the bowl. Place the bowl in the refrigerator until the recipe is ready to be served.
Making the Cabbage Slaw
Take the shredded cabbage and add it to a medium/large sized bowl. Make sure to toss the cabbage with the salt first. Add the oil and lime juice next, making sure to toss every time a new ingredient is added to make sure everything is distrusted evenly. Add the onions, cilantro, and jalapeno.
Making the Tacos
Heat up the cod in a pan to the desired temperature. Warming up the tortillas is the next step, they can be heated up in the microwave. Pro tip: tortillas that are cooked over an open flame on the stove for 30 seconds can make a huge difference in the way the tacos taste. But be careful!
Place the heated fish on a plate and break apart to make it easier to serve. Set up a Taco Station with the Cabbage Slaw and Crema (and any other toppings you would like). Place the fish on top of a warm tortilla and top it off with the crema and slaw! Serve hot for the best flavor.
