You hear about all the wonderful health benefits of eating fish. I am not a fish-lover but Christian is. I am happy to eat a fish stick (fried fish covered in breadcrumbs) smothered in ketchup. I don’t think I even taste the fish, which is just the way I like it. In our effort to empty out our freezer, I made a list of all the meals or frozen foods that we had in there so we could try to use them during our weekend cooking. This time, we decided to make a dish with some frozen cod that was taking up room. I found this recipe for Cod Baked in a Tomato & Feta Sauce. Based on the picture & description, I might not even taste the fish with loads of tomato sauce & cheese…perfect.
We first defrosted our frozen cod.
The first step to the sauce is to sauté an onion & then add in two garlic cloves and some chili pepper flakes.
Add some white wine to the onion & garlic mix and let simmer. This was a really good white wine from one of our trips down to the Ahr Valley.
Add in a large can of diced tomatoes & let the sauce start to thicken.
About fifteen minutes later, the sauce was ready to have the fresh herbs (parsley & dill) added.
Added the feta cheese.
The cod was placed in a baking dish & the sauce was poured over it. It then went in the oven & baked for fifteen minutes or so.
Christian thought the meal was great. I took one bite and could taste the fish. Not for me! I ended up eating the sauce with some bread, which I enjoyed, as the sauce was very tasty!
