Funny you shd ask this question...I just took some cod out of my freezer and I have no idea what to do with it. I want to keep it simple so I will prob just season & butter and bake.

A favourite recipe at the top and then I put down a few ideas at the end, you can do any of them for either flounder or cod. If you go extra on the sauce of the first one, it's really good with chicken. Sounds like a lot but you can make it and have in the oven in about 20-25 minutes.

The two fishies that you have are so nice and mild that most any recipe will do you right :)

Oven to 425

Sauce 2 tablespoons fat - 1 medium onion, finely chopped - 1 cup finely chopped fennel bulb - 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced - 1 can diced tomatoes including juice, 14.5oz can - 1/4 cup white wine - 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained - Pinch salt - Pinch teaspoon black pepper - Fish 1/2 cup fine almond meal - 3 tablespoons butter, well softened - Pinch salt - Pinch pepper - 4 pieces of flounder or cod, about 6oz each piece doesn't have to be perfect - 2 tablespoons dry white wine -

Make sauce: Heat fat in a heavy pan saute onion and fennel, stirring until golden in colour, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and saute, stirring the whole time, for about 20 seconds. Burned garlic is the worst.

Add tomatoes and wine and simmer until liquid is reduced by one third, about 5 minutes. Stir in capers, salt, and pepper, then transfer to a 2-quart wide shallow dish or other wide shallow baking dish.

Fish: Stir together almond meal, butter, salt, and pepper with a fork until combined, will be crumbly. Season fish with salt and pepper, then roll each piece, skinned side up, into a cylinder and arrange, seam side down, on top of sauce. Press the almond crumbs onto fish. Slowly and carefully drizzle the wine around fish into sauce (not over fish) and bake in middle of oven until fish is just cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.

Ideas:

  • Fish in parchment paper: one piece in each, that has lemon slice, herbs, vegetables. Cooks like a dream and barely any cleanup. Foil works as a substitute
  • Fish cakes! So good hot or cold--
  • Bake or broil - keep it simple and use leftovers for fish tacos, wrapping in lettuce or cabbage leaves

Any recipe for fish works fine for cod, but here's one that I love.

The only change you would make is intend of breadcrumbs, use chopped almonds.

I didn't make the potatoes and we subbed in garlic mushrooms instead of pea mash. We also skipped the tartar sauce, really no need.
