Marinara Haddock

Growing up, my parents either cooked or took us out to dinner for fish nearly every Friday night. I did not like fish. I loved shellfish (shrimp, lobster, crab), but regular fish was always so… fishy. Still, my parents insisted. I would eat as little of the fish as possible, choosing to fill up on vegetables and rice or bread.

Sometime in high school, I started enjoying salmon and, since meeting Brent, I’ve sampled different kinds of fish at restaurants and we have created quite a few fish recipes. My palate has certainly grown and I actually enjoy some preparations of fish now! Some of my favorites are our basil salmon burgers, cod fritters, and grilled swordfish.

This particular recipe is super easy and ready in just about 30 minutes. It’s perfect for a quick and no-hassel dinner after a long day at the office. Pair it with some sautéed spinach, steamed broccoli, or other vegetables!

Pan Fried Cod with Asian Glaze

Asian Glaze Cod

Sorry this week’s post is somewhat short on dialogue (or you’re welcome to those who just want the recipe!).  Things are a bit crazy on our end, but we hope to get back to sanity somewhat soon.  We’ve been preparing and organizing for the upcoming P3! Paleo, Polyface, PorkFest!  There are lots of giveaways going on, so you’ll want to check it out.  If you’re in the MD/DC/VA area, you should come!  We’re super grateful to be sponsored by none other than Polyface Farms, and we hope we do them proud.  But that’s bacon, and this is cod…

Cod is a fish that we hadn’t been very familiar with, but after conquering fritters we decided it was something we would like to have more often.  Especially when it goes on sale wild-caught at Costco.  This is a pan fried/poached rendition with a tasty glaze.
