Cod, Improvised.

August 19, 2008

Here’s an easy dish that I whipped up after finding myself home alone and lunch-less. I guess you can call it panfried cod with lemon zest spinach on a bed of mashed potatoes, but really its just fish spinach and potatoes.

Throw some kosher salt and white pepper on the cod. In a hot pan and olive oil, place fish skin down, pressing down firmly to ensure good contact with the pan. Hold for 2 to 3 minutes until skin is crisp. Another 2 to 3 minutes per side to cook the rest of the fish.

For spinach, prepare olive oil and generous amount of lemon/orange peel in a hot pan. When peel starts to curl, add the spinach and fry for 3 minutes. Salt to taste. Shape into a ball.

Nothing special about the mashed potatoes–a little butter, milk, salt & pepper to taste. I added some raw shallots, too. 

Garnish with some paprika, lemon zest. Simple & healthy. Good luck!
