This simple yet delicious cod recipe combines baked cod, black beans, and sautéed celery for an unusual dish. The black bean mixture combines garlic, onion and cayenne pepper, as well as the black beans themselves, and the resulting mixture is gently spiced and totally delicious. The cod has a parmesan, garlic, and breadcrumb coating which gives the succulent fish some crunch.

The celery topping is partly for added crunch, partly for extra flavor and partly for garnish. Keep the leaves off the top of the celery because you can decorate the baked cod recipe with those. You might not want to eat them but they look nice.

Cod is one of the most versatile fish. It is mild enough to dress up with any sauce, seasonings, herbs, or spices you like. It also works with bold sauces and you can use it in spicy fish recipes because the flavor will stand up to the other ingredients. You can also use cod in plainer dishes, perhaps adding salt, pepper and a little lemon juice for flavor. Cod is one of the most popular kinds of fish ever and it is really good in the following recipe, where it is baked to perfection.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
