Stove Top Cod

I have been trying to venture out and make new recipes this summer since I am home and when I was at the store last week I bought some wild caught cod that was on sale. I looked around the internets and found this Crumb-Coated Cod recipe on allrecipes and borrowed and made it my own.
First, I took the cod out of the bag and poured some Italian dressing in a bag and put the frozen fish in it. (Next, time I would probably put some Italian dressing in the other liquid mixture.)


Then I put it in a bowl of lukewarm water so that it could thaw. (In the mean time I had the oven preheating to 425 degrees. And water boiling for mac and cheese.


I took the Stove Top out and used all of the stuffing inside. I didn't really crunch it up super well but I made sure that I pressed it into the cod so that it stayed.


In this bowl I put 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons EVOO, some Italian dressing that I sprinkled in and 1 tablespoon melted margarine. (If I made it again, I would most definitely add the Italian Dressing to this part because the cod was really flimsy when it thawed. I would probably exchange it for the water.)


All the stuffing waiting to be used.




Now the cod sits in the liquid mixture and soaks up all the good stuff. My husband SWEARS this was the best thing ever because it took away the fishy taste. I would agree I didn't notice a fishy taste at all and I did smell it when I was opening it.



This is a picture of the cod after I had it dipped and then coated with the stuffing. I made sure to press it in because it was hard to get it to stick. I also made sure the pan I put it in was greased up, which made for an easy clean up. I put some extra stuffing on the top. Yummm... Who doesn't love stuffing?? I put the cod in the 425 preheated oven for 16 minutes.




Fresh out of the oven. Aren't those crusty's looking wonderful. Even better to put on top of your mac & cheese!!!


Speaking of mac & cheese I just used this stuff from the box. Love it. hmmmm...




We had some nice lovely green grapes on the side...




Some sugar snap peas from the garden...




Some cottage cheese...




Some tomato....




My plate.. Nom Nom Nom...
It was a really great meal and pretty simple. My husband even liked it and he usually only likes fried fish!

Yum! Looks great!! I just saw Mac and Cheese the other day when I was at Walmart and got a HUGE craving for it - I can't remember the last time I've made it from a box. May have to remedy that soon :)
