    About this recipe: A friend of mine cooked this one night and I have never been a big seafood eater but I couldn't believe how good the flavours were all together. Its something I often cook now. Its fantastic and easy! Look for the smoked cod in lengths. You get 2 cuts per length.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 1 piece smoked cod.
    • PARSLEY SAUCE
    • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
    • 1 tbsp margarine
    • 1 tbsp plain flour - I use wheat free
    • ½ - ¾ (125-180ml) cup milk
    • a squeeze Lemon Juice
    • salt and pepper
    • MASH
    • 2 potatoes
    • 1 tbsp margarine or butter
    • ¼ cup (65ml) of milk
    • ½ tsp minced garlic

    Directions
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Start with boiling the potatoes as they take the longest. Peel and roughly chop the potatoes and after they have been on for about 5 minutes, place the cod in a frying pan, just on low and cook for approx 5-7 mins each side.
    2. While the cod is cooking, prepare the sauce.
    3. To make the sauce; melt the margarine, then add the flour to make a thick paste. You may need to add a little more if needed. Add the milk to make a sauce, stirring as much as you can to reduce lumps. Again, the milk quantity may vary depending how much flour was used. Keep stirring and once you get the consistency you like, add in the parsley, salt and pepper and the lemon juice and keep stirring.
    4. Once the potatoes are boiled, add in your margarine and milk and mash. Add salt and pepper for taste and the minced garlic.
    5. Place the mash on a plate flat. Lie the cod on top and then pour parsley sauce over. It is sensational!! This meal is gluten and wheat free also.
