Do you ever get on a kick of one particular food and feel like you stay on that kick for a while? We’ve been buying frozen fish, particularly frozen cod and frozen tuna, because they are easy, fast, and quite affordable. There are a few ways to make the cod taste pretty good too…you might even call it FRESH tasting instead of frozen! I call this recipe, “Salsa Saves Frozen Cod”. See my lemon cod recipe for a second option!
In this particular recipe, you can either take the time to make a homemade salsa or just buy a fresh salsa from the refrigerated section at your grocery store (usually near the produce). When I made it this week I used the store-bought salsa so we are literally talking 2 minutes to get the fish ready and 12-13 minutes to cook it — easy!
So take your defrosted cod (you could also do this on chicken if you don’t care for fish) and pat it dry. Place the defrosted cod on a tinfoil lined baking sheet that has a mist of non-stick cooking spray. Use a spoon to apply a generous portion of salsa to each piece of fish (1-2 TBSP depending on size of fish). Top with fresh chopped cilantro and bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.
We served this with jasmine rice, fresh baked veggies and half an avocado. The fish was so good you would never know it was frozen! And there you have it, “Salsa Saves Frozen Cod”!
