30-Minute Recipes: Cod Parcels

Cod Parcels

Sometimes you just need a really simple, healthy dinner that you can pull off with very little effort!

Cod Parcels is THAT dinner!

It is so simple, and quick it barely deserves a recipe……this is more of a step-by-step guide through the process.

I used very simple seasonings for two main reasons – cod is a light fish, it is delicate and the flavor is subtle so you have to go light on any seasonings so you don’t overpower the natural flavor of the fish! Don’t even get me started on the time I added a pesto crust to cod…..disaster!! Secondly, I wanted to keep it simple!  I first made these after a LONG day of baking so the last thing I wanted to do was make dinner, but duty calls, so I went for the easy option!

You can serve these with any side dishes you choose, in winter you may want to pair it with rice or mashed potatoes (or if you know me at all I would pair it with mashed potatoes all year round!!), or quinoa for a protein-rich alternative.  In summer it would go perfectly with coleslaw or a simple green salad.

Whichever way you choose to eat this dish…..Enjoy!
