One word – YUM! My son loved the fish (though he did dip it in soy sauce since that’s his new favorite condiment). It might have helped that I billed it as homemade fish sticks – whatever works, right?! We had sauteed zucchini and couscous as accompaniments with this flavorful, crispy, broiled cod.
Here’s what it is:
- 2 eggs whites
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 t paprika
- 3/4 t onion powder
- 3/4 t garlic powder
- 4 skinless cod fillets
- salt and pepper
- cooking spray
- 1/4 C mayo
- 2 T finely chopped dill pickle
- 1 t lemon juice
- 1 t chopped fresh dill
Preheat the broiler. Put the egg whites in one shallow dish and the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika in another. Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge the fish in the egg whites and then the breadcrumbs to coat. Place on a broiler pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Broil the fish for about 4 minutes on each side or until they are to your desired doneness.
For the sauce: Combine the mayo, pickle, lemon juice, and dill. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
For the sides: Cut the zucchini into 1/2 inch-ish slices and saute in a skillet with a little olive oil and salt and pepper for about 5 minutes. Cook the couscous according to the packages directions (though I used chicken broth instead of water).
Sometimes I find “light” recipes a little bland, but this was delicious! So if you’re looking to add a some fish to your repertoire, this is a good one!
