This province has so much to offer in terms of fresh, local ingredients, but a freshly caught codfish has to be my absolute favorite of them all. Like so many of my fellow Newfoundlanders, I grew up spending summers on the ocean with my family, fishing on both the beautiful sunny days and the just as beautiful (in their own way) foggy mornings with a thermos of Tetley tea in hand. The first fish of the year has always been my favorite, and something special to look forward to each spring. So fresh, tender, moist and sweet. There truly is nothing I enjoy more as far as fresh ingredients go!

It's also time to check out the local farmers markets in your area to see what they have to offer! Freshly grown dill is sure to be there and is the perfect compliment to your freshly caught cod. While you're there, grab some salad greens and make up a quick salad to serve on the side, maybe try out one of my salads right  here by Grace & Jack! And soon enough they will have those new potatoes we all look forward to each year, you could boil some up and serve hot with melted butter and local sea salt. The possibilities are endless here.


A little tip for baking cod; be very careful not to overcook it. We definitely don't want to dry out that scrumptious fish, so be sure to keep an eye to it as it cooks, I have a recommended cook time here, but as we know, each fillet and oven are different so it's best to use your own judgement. Let's keep that moist, saltwater freshness in there for maximum flavor to tickle your taste-buds.

Okay, let's get this codfish all dressed up and into the oven!


Almond and Dill Crusted Cod Fillets

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients accept cod fillets then set aside. If you are planning to eat later in the day you can make this topping ahead of time and store in the fridge.
  3. Place fillets on a rack over a baking sheet leaving space between the fish. Spread and even amount of topping over each fillet and place in the oven. 
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or just long enough to make the topping golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy!
Happy Fishing Friends!
