Photo Description:

This colorful and appetizing recipe features cod, rice, vegetables, and a homemade teriyaki sauce. To get the blackened, seared effect, like you can see in the photo, it is important to ensure the oil in the pan is very hot before you add the cod, else the fish will go soggy instead of crunchy, and it might not go golden brown. The teriyaki sauce helps to darken the color too, as well as infusing he dish with a wonderful flavor. If you want to serve wine with this, go for something medium sweet like a Riesling. That will be able to stand up to the semi-sweet flavor of the dish.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today.

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?
