Cod In Sauce

My wife doesn’t like the smell of fish being fried, which sadly is my favourite way to cook fish. Fish is something I would like to have 3 or 4 times a week, my wife only wants it occasionally. I have tried different ways to cook fish in a way that suits my wife’s sensitive nose. Didn’t have much success with that so fish became something we were eating in a restaurant rather than at home. About 20 years ago I made a recipe that my wife actually likes, nice part is I really like it too. The idea for it came from my making coquilles st. jacques, which is a great recipe. Over the years I have made it with different cheeses and my wife liked all of them. This is another very simple thing to make that just tastes great. So I know everyone knows how to make a simple white sauce, get a kick out of everyone using the french name for it. No recipe needed for it, just what’s added. Since we still can’t go to a restaurant we still got to have the fish we were both craving.

2 cups white sauce with the following add

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon dill

1 tablespoon grated cheese ( I used old cheddar, but any cheese works)

8 fillets cod

8 sticks red pepper

8 pieces green onion

Salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper the fillets and roll them with the red pepper and onion In each. Pin with a toothpick and place in a casserole dish. Spoon the white sauce over them and bake in a preheated 400 oven for 30 minutes.

    This looks good! My Mother’s Family made this the British way, smoked cod simmered 10 minutes in a pan with a bit of water then put in plain white sauce. One of my favourites. Finn an Haddie I believe.😊

    • Yes finn and Haddie we grew up eating it also. Had to watch your dad or there would be enough for everyone. The sauce was just butter, flour, salt and white pepper. Try the cod in sauce the little adds to the sauce makes it taste great.
