Cod in a Parsley and Cheese Sauce

I made cod today wild caught Alaskan, after writing for Alaskan Harvest Seafood I am only buying wild caught and sustainable fish, it has really made me think.
This was so so good:

  • 2 fillets of cod or desired number
  • 1 cup of milk
  • one tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of flour
  • 1/2 a bunch of fresh parsley
  • 2 slices of swiss cheese
  • 1/2 bunch of spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  1. poach the cod in olive oil and salt and pepper with the spinach, turn to a low heat for 5 minutes.
  2. in a separate pan make a rouxe with the flour and butter then slowly add the milk, continuously stirring it so there are no lumps
  3. after a couple of minutes add the cheese and fresh chopped parsley stir until you get a nice thick and creamy sauce
  4. add to the cod and simmer for 2 minutes.
Roasted Red Potatoes


  • 10 small red potatoes chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • Italian herbs
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

  1. add the olive oil, potatoes, garlic and herbs and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until soft.
This was a lovely meal, quick to make and full of flavor, it is a very common way to cook fish in the UK, so for me it reminded me of home.
