I like to think that I’m a salmon connoisseur. Always have been, and hopefully always will be! It’s a fish that carries so much flavor and nutrients; you can’t help but love it! But let’s not forget the other swimmers here. Yes, other fish can be just as important to your diet as the POWER HOUSE SALMON.
Today let’s talk about Atlantic Cod- a fish with mild flavor and dense, flaky white flesh. Per 4-oz portion: Total omega-3=195mg; EPA=5mg; DHA=175mg; Protein=31g
Here’s a look at why Cod is just as nutrient dense as Salmon
Ready to give it a try?
1. Cut your fennel bulb in half with the stem still attached. Then cut bulb into wedges. Take the stem and pull off leaves (seeds). Arrange the bulb pieces in a baking dish and lightly coat with balsamic vinegar and oil. I would say about 1-2 tbsp of each. Then sprinkle your garlic on top along with the rest of your fennel leaves.
2. Roast at 400F for about 12-14 minutes. Broil the last 2 minutes.
3. All you need to do for the Cod is marinate it in homemade dressing or a honey lime dressing for about 10 minutes. Then roast with the fennel and check it after 10 minutes or before your broil the fennel. I like to top the fish with a little curry or chili pepper seasoning as well, but that’s my preference.
This is the perfect Springtime meal or backyard BBQ. So what are you waiting for? DIG IN!
