If you like fish( or not), this is a great recipe, Cod is a great introductory fish to a family who may not have the feel for the consumption of fish. It is a popular saltwater fish that is mild-flavored, lean with firm white meat. It is also an excellent low-calorie source of protein; a great alternative should you be looking to change up your meat rotation during the week. I have been trying to do a bit of all meats and fish so we can have a variety of foods. This particular recipe is fast and uncomplicated and would be great for a day you don’t have a ton of time. The whole meal can be presented in about 25 minutes.
1 1/2 pounds cod fillets
salt and ground black pepper to taste
4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill divided
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
1 lemon, cut into wedges
¼ cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. coat your baking sheet with olive oil.
Season the fillets with salt and pepper and arrange fillets on prepared baking surface.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes and sprinkle evenly with dill. Continue baking until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2 minutes more.
Stir sour cream, capers, olive oil, dill and lemon zest in a bowl; season with salt.
Serve fish with a nice salad include lemon wedges and sour cream caper sauce. I put a bit on the fish and on the side for dipping.
