Best Cod Recipes
Poached Cod with Shiitakes
Cod is a white fish that's low in fat and high in vitamins A and D and omega-3 fatty acids. While best known as the typical main ingredient in classic fish and chips, the mild-tasting fish offers a lighter side that makes it a prime candidate for a variety of healthy dishes, including a lighter version of the English original.
Ready in less than 20 minutes, Poached Cod with Shiitakes steps into weeknight dinner territory. Cod cooks in vibrant broths that go straight from pan to plate for an elegant, fast dinner.
Some types of cod remain threatened as a result of overfishing, so check out Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Guide for information about sustainable choices.
