Cod is one of my favorite fishes for so many reasons. For one, it is readily available in most grocery stores either fresh or frozen. It has a very mild flavor, so most people like it, even those that swear they don’t like fish. (Although, I still think that most people that say they don’t like fish are eating fish that wasn’t prepared in a delicious way.) This is one of those recipes that could turn a self-proclaimed fish hater around!
Cod is also a naturally oily fish so it has a bunch of those healthy Omega-3 fats that are good for our bodies and good for our brains, not to mention that the fat gives it more flavor! It’s a great source of lean protein and basically a blank canvas for whatever flavors you pair with it.
It’s the perfect fish for absorbing the sweet and spicy flavors in this Asian marinade, and then there’s the drizzle of the reduced marinade on top! I promise you that this recipe will make your tastebuds smile.
You can use a bag of prepared slaw if you are tight on time or that’s what you have on hand, but the fresh slaw is much tastier and better for you.
This recipe is super simple, give it a try and let me know how it goes!
