Zoey, Saturday Recipe

Well, Zoey came to lunch today and brought ladydog with her. They brought some dog biscuits too so Zoey knew where to give her attention. We then had our Subs for lunch and when Matt left the table, he got down to feeding Zoey the rest of the dog biscuits. They ended up with Matt asleep in the chair and Zoey asleep at his feet. Ladydog and I went and got a few Christmas decorations out of the storage closet before she left. Always sorry to see her go.

For supper I am going to cook the cod I bought the other day and this is the recipe I am going to use.

Mediterranean baked cod recipe with lemon and garlic

Best baked cod recipe out there! Prepared Greek style with a few spices and a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil and lots of garlic. Bakes in 15 mins!

1.5 lb Cod fillet pieces (4–6 pieces)
5 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
Lemon Juice Mixture
5 Tbs fresh lemon juice
5 Tbs Private Reserve extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbs melted butter
For Coating
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground coriander
3/4 tsp sweet Spanish paprika
3/4 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

1. Mix lemon juice, olive oil, and melted butter in a shallow bowl. Set aside

2. In another shallow bowl, mix all-purpose flour, spices, salt and pepper. Set next to the lemon juice mixture.

3. Pat fish fillet dry. Dip fish in the lemon juice mixture then dip in the flour mixture. Shake off excess flour.

4. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat (watch the oil to be sure it is sizzling but not smoking). Add fish and sear on each side to give it some color, but do not fully cook (about a couple minutes on each side) Remove from heat.

5. To the remaining lemon juice mixture, add the minced garlic and mix. Drizzle all over the fish fillets.

6. Bake in the heated oven for until it begins to flake easily with a fork (10 minutes should do it, but begin checking earlier). Remove from heat and sprinkle chopped parsley.

Yield: 4
