This cod recipe is based on Portuguese cuisine and fish (especially cod) is really popular in Portugal. You can use salt cod, like the Portuguese do, or regular cod filets for this recipe. Bear in mind that salt cod needs to be soaked in water for twenty four hours before you cook with it. Change the water every few hours to get rid of the excess salt. It will still be saltier than regular cod so, if you are using salt cod in this creamy fish casserole recipe, so not add any extra salt to the recipe. Use fresh or frozen cod instead of salt cod and the resulting meal will be just as tasty.

Because this cod casserole is so creamy, you will find that kids love it too, even kids who are normally fussy about fish which does not resemble fish sticks! Give it a try and see what yours think.

Feel free to add other ingredients to this recipe if you want to. Diced tomatoes, zucchini, or mushrooms would boost the nutrient count and you could even stir in some cooked shrimp five minutes before the end of the cooking time if you wanted to. Serve this delicious fish casserole recipe with rice and a side salad. It contains potatoes so you might not want rice (if you do not like too many carbs) but the side salad is a good idea for this dish.

Photo Description:

This wonderful creamy concoction features cod, potatoes, onions, garlic, and a beautiful cream sauce. You can swap the cod for salmon, tilapia or another kind of fish if you want to. Also, any fresh herb makes a good garnish for this. You do not have to use mint unless you happen to have some growing outside. If you do have fresh mint, by the way, you might like to leave the potatoes out of the casserole and serve them on the side, mashed with some finely chopped mint. That would be an amazing side dish to really complement the creamy fish mixture.

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.
