I hear this alot: “I love ordering fish when I am in a restaurant but have no idea how to make it taste good at home.”
Can you relate?
Never fear, Abra to the rescue.
This is a recipe that kids and picky partners will love. Jordan, my BF, said, “Why is this fish so good? What did you do to it?”
What I did was a secret little tip (not so secret anymore) spreading a little mayo (vegenaise is my mayo of choice) on the fish before you bake it seals in flavor and makes a moist delicious fish. I boosted flavor by whisking fresh dill and garlic into the vegenaise.
Top with crunchy pumpkin seeds, and voila! Dinner in under 30 minutes and yummy to boot.
I served my pumpkin seed crusted cod with a bitter raddichio and endive salad. It was a simple dinner. The perfect ending to a busy week.
