Fish is brain food! We have instituted “Wednesday is Fish night” and my kids are thrilled now that we have some tasty fish recipes. I experimented with coconut oil and it gave this breaded cod a lovely flavor. Enjoy!
Breaded Coconut Cod with Mustard Orange Sauce
1 lb wild cod fish cut into 4 fillets
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
one TBS coconut oil
1) Wash and dry the cod pieces with paper towel. Bread with crumbs and set aside on a plate.
Heat up the coconut oil in a medium sized frying pan. When oil is melted and starting to smoke a bit, place the cod filets in the pan and cook for 4-6 minutes or until golden brown and almost cooked through (fish will be opaque). Flip and fry on the other side for a few minutes until golden. Remove from heat.
3) Serve fish with mustard orange sauce drizzled on top.
Mustard Orange Sauce:
One TBS orange marmalade
One TBS Dijon mustard
Stir with a fork to combine and set aside in small bowl
