Cod Fish Recipe

This cod fish recipe is always popular. Everyone seems to enjoy it. For the tasty nut crust, you can use almond, walnut, macadamia, or pecan nuts, whichever you might prefer.

If you are following a Paleolithic diet, use walnuts.

The recipe yields two servings. You may double or half the recipe ingredients if more of fewer portions are required.

Fresh cod, which is a mild white fish, will beautifully absorb the flavours of whatever one cooks with it. However, fresh rather than frozen cod is required to achieve this.

This fresh cod recipe uses the combination of healthy coconut butter and nuts to produce a tasty nut-crusted thick fillet.

Cod Fish Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 2 x 5 ounce pieces of boneless fresh (not cod that has been fozen) cod (1 inch thick)
  • 8 ounces of finely chopped nuts (by hand or in a coffee grinder)
  • freshly ground black pepper according to taste
  • sea salt according to taste
  • a handful of chopped cilantro (coriander), to garnish
  • wedges of fresh lime or lemon, to garnish

If possible, use organic ingredients.

Cooking Method

Pre-heat the oven to 220°C (425°F)

Rinse the cod in cold water and thoroughly pat dry with paper kitchen towel.

Lightly grease a baking sheet with a little of the melted coconut butter/oil. Place the remaining melted coconut oil in a bowl, in which you will later dip the fish.

Mix the chopped nuts with the seasoning and spread on a plate.

One piece at a time, dip the cod into the remaining coconut oil making sure that it is thoroughly coated. Then press the fish into the nut mixture, coating both sides of the fish. Press down firmly to ensure that the nuts stick to the fish.

Place the nut-crusted cod on the baking dish and bake for 8 – 10 minutes until the fish is cooked through. Transfer to plates, sprinkle with the chopped cilantro (coriander), garnish with wedges of fresh lime or lemon, and serve immediately.

Serve with a crisp green salad or fresh vegetables for a healthy balanced lunch or dinner. This is also a quality protein low carbohydrate meal.

Organic ingredients are a healthier choice; use organic ingredients whenever you can get them.
