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.
Salted cod is a fantastic ingredient to keep in your fridge. It keeps for months and can be stirred into scrambled eggs and fried potatoes to make this Portuguese specialty, bacalhau à la brás. This savory, rustic dish makes the perfect brunch, as it's served family-style in a big pan.
This easy-to-fix skillet dinner elevates plain white fish to the height of good taste as the fish is incorporated into a Mediterranean-style ragout chock-full of tasty ingredients such as prosciutto and shiitake mushrooms.
