If you are looking for an awesome dinner recipe that will impress your guests, than you’ve landed on the right blog post. This Fillet of Black Cod Almondine recipe looks super fancy, but is actually super easy to make. Such a fan of recipes like this, especially when I know i’ve got a few dinner parties coming up that I have to cook for. Fish is always a good option when serving the masses. It’s light and healthy, yet still filling and satisfying.
Let’s be honest though, most recipes you find in the cookbook “Joy of Cooking” are delicious when prepared correctly. This is yet another winner recipe from the book, and if you don’t know already, we are cooking through it. Yes you heard that correctly, we are cooking through this encyclopedia sized cookbook that has over 4000 recipes in it. You can find this Fillet of Black Cod Almondine on page 404, so feel free to purchase a copy HERE, and follow along with us as we tackle this beast. You must be thinking how crazy are we to take on this challenge, but it’s not as bad as it seems.
For example, recipes like this Black Cod are paired with a fish sauce recipe which you can choose from many different options and it becomes a two for one type deal. We ended up making a traditional quick white sauce (found on page 342), and you can’t go wrong with that ever. To tie in the flavors from the fish and sauce, we used a few similar ingredients such as lemon and parsley. It’s very subtle, but definitely makes a difference.
We really did enjoy the process of choosing a fish recipe, than sort of building a sauce to pair with it. I guess this book really does live up to it’s title because it has helped reintroduce ourselves to the joy of cooking. The fun continues tomorrow with a post that comes straight from apple heaven. You must come back and see for yourself what we have in store! Until then, happy cooking friends!
