An idea for a recipe for cod please?

Please can someone give me a new and different idea for a recipe for cod. I have tried wrapping in parma ham, with cheese sauce etc. I am tired of these recipes and need some inspiration for something new… thank you.

    Had some last night…. Very simple: olive oil in your pan, start to warm the pan, wash the cod, shake (don’t dry) the excess water off and place it in the pan, salt and pepper,a squeeze of lemon and a splash of white wine – cover and let “steam”. Check for to see if done, take out with a spatula and place on dish…. quickly put a small amount of white flour in the pan – turn the heat back up and stir – do not let brown. It take just a minute. Spoon this “gravy” over the fish (and a bit of chopped parsley if you have some) …. and dig in!

    I also really like fish – here is a couple.


    6 oz. cod fillet (true cod or Atlantic cod)
    1 tsp. mayonnaise
    3 slices tomato
    3 slices pepper
    3 slices onion
    1 tsp. oregano
    Salt & pepper

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash cod fillet. Salt and pepper both sides and coat with mayonnaise. Place in a shallow baking pan. Place tomato slices in a row on top of the fillet, layer pepper slices on top of that and then onion slices on top of that. Sprinkle with oregano.
    Place a small amount of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake about 5-7 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the fillet. When the onion on top begins to brown, test the fillet by flaking it lightly with a fork. The key to this recipe is not to overcook the fish! Properly cooked fish should be moist and slightly sweet. Overcooked fish is dry and tasteless.


    2 oz. butter
    1 med. onion, chopped
    4 oz. mushrooms, chopped
    1 stick celery
    4 oz. bread crumbs
    4 oz. shelled shrimp
    Grated rind & juice of 1 lg. lemon
    1 tsp. dill
    Salt & pepper
    4 cod steaks, skinned
    1 can cream of broccoli soup
    4 oz. milk
    2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese

    Heat the butter in frying pan and gently fry onion, mushrooms and celery for 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in bread crumbs, shrimp, lemon rind, dill, salt and pepper and mix well. Place the cod steaks and spoon the stuffing into the cavity of each. Mix together the soup, milk and lemon juice.
    Pour 1/2 of it around fish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and cook in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes until fish is tender. Heat remaining sauce and serve separately with stuffed cod. Serves 4.

    i like to make a quick sauce by pureeing some roasted red peppers with a little bit of OJ, then bring to a simmer, season to taste. Toss a few onion slices in olive oil, grill or broil till crisp, or you could deep fry them if you have a fryer. broil the cod, season with S & P, top with the onions. serve on top of some sauteed spinach or watercress, pool the sauce around the plate. pretty, healthy, tasty.

    Brush the cod with italian dressing then sprinkle the top with Panko bread crumbs. (they are dif. from regular bread crumbs, they are white & crispy) Then spritz the top with a spray of “Pam” (spray oil) and bake. The last min., broil to really crisp up the top…

    Well one I have done before is too roast the cod in the oven

    served with pea puree (cook some in a pan with a little water salt pepper and veg stock and then blitz them or crush them)

    And also serve them with either sote potatoes or potato wedges home made and a slice of lemon.

    You could also do some side veg as well if more food is needed.

    Cod fish is a staple in Puerto Rico but we use salted cod. You can use fresh cod as well for the recipes although I haven’t tried it with fresh cod.

    Click on my profile for the web link and when you browse the recipes you will find:

    Chayote Cod Fish Salad & Cod Fish Fritters (in the appetizers section)

    Codfish Gazpacho & Codfish Stew & Pickled Fish (in the main dishes section)

    Why not try using a different fish? Cod stocks are incredibly low and many other tasty fish caught along with cod are thrown away as ‘by-catch’.

    Try asking your fishmonger what is local and fresh (cod trawlers ice everything so you aren’t getting top quality fish anyway).

    I’ve enjoyed some locally caught hake and some really excellent sea trout recently. The hake was just delicious and would work really well in a thai type curry with coconut milk.

    The sea trout I stuffed with herbs, a little salt and pepper, and sprinkled with vermouth before wrapping in the foil and baking in a moderate oven for 25 minutes or so – a delicious and environmentally sound cross between salmon and trout.

    I’ve also barbecued a sea bream on Saturday (less environmentally cool but not bad) just as it was not even seasoned and the fish was so fresh and sweet it didn’t need anything else.

    So come on – make friends with your fishmonger and lets get the cod stocks back up!

    You want the cod to be then main thang here, parma ham and cheese sauce takes to much away from the fish flavor. try this basic recipe. Take your cod fillet salt and pepper to taste, add some garlic powder, place fish on large peice and foil, place a few sliced red onions over the top, then a few peices of sliced lemon, and a big peice of butter, wrap tightly and grill or bake over meduim heat for about 20 to 30 mins, turning often. Thiss works with almost any fish. Heres another simple one. Take a baking sheet, rub lightly with olive oil, take cod fillets, brush with a olive oil butter mix, season with what you like, salt, pepper, garlic powder, ol bay seasoning, or season salt. Put cod into baking sheet, chop some fresh dill, sprinkle dill over the top and bake on 400 until desired doneness. One more. take some cod, steam it until done, break up the cod into a bowl, add an egg, two if theres alot of fish, breadcrumbs, chopped shallots, seasoning. forn into small ball, like meatballs, and deep fry until golden and crispy, serve with tarter sauce.
