Baked Cod Provençal; Cooking fish, the Weekly Menu — 11 Comments

  1. Who doesn’t love fish sticks???
    We try to eat fish once a week…my hubby also isn’t crazy about it. LOVES the shrimp, crab, lobster….not so much the cod, salmon, tuna. Too bad….tonight it is wild caught Alaskan salmon with a side of Lemon/Thyme orzo. How bad can that be???

  2. Hi Katie – we try to have seafood once a week too, although my dh won’t eat shell fish of any kind….so he gets chicken, we get the shrimp, scallops, etc. This recipe would be lovely with Snapper too. Ina

  3. I have to struggle to have fish frequently – not that it’s hard to cook or hard to find, just that I don’t think of it that often. Yours looks good.

  4. You made me laugh at the mari description! I know quite a few people who share his aversion; which is totally weird to me ’cause I grew up eating the entire fish, tail and all, fried and thought it was yummy!
    Oh well, I would just serve him fish sticks and buy myself the best possible fresh fish at market!

  5. the fish sellers never give up to “style” the monkfish… spread open its jaw and mouth, sometime insert another fish into its mouth … what a style! anyway, that dry-cure olive sounds superb!

  6. I like your fresh ingredients piled on top…not overcooked. The Throumpes (Greek) olives are my fave. I bring back some each year.

  7. monkfish is great if you do not have to look it in the eye before cooking and eating it, so if you get that chance maybe try it…I love all fish but my father can stand having the stuff in the house so, while i am living at home, no fish for me

  8. Cindy, okay, so we love fish sticks – the secret is out….
    Ina, what is it with husbands and fish?
    Zoomie, like anything, it has gotten to be a habit.
    Tasteofbeirut, that is actually what I’ve started doing – and I’m okay with the tail, but not the eyes….
    Gattina, they do seem to enjoy playing with that huge jaw, don’t they?
    Peter, thankfully we can get Grek olives – the French olives are not nearly as flavorful.
    Shayne, I know it’s supposed to be fantastic… it’s just soooo ugly.
    Rachel, olivephobes….. OH NO!

  9. Sound just like my Honey…one bone…game over! Sight of a whole fish…game over! Smell something “fishy”…game over!
    Perhaps I’ll give this cod a try. It certainly looks gorgeous.

  10. Ruth, one would think they were 5 years old! I’ll feed him fish sticks and be done with it.
