Traditional Newfoundland Cod Pouches
I don't no about you but sometimes it's hard to know what to cook for supper, having a few quick and easy dishes to make is wonderful.
This cod meal is healthy and delicious.
The most cooked cod meal is probably deep fried cod and I love that recipe too, but sometimes you like to change it up and try different cod recipes.
This recipe is for two cod pouches if you like to make more just double or triple the recipe.
- Cod fillets - 2 Pieces
- Onion - 1 Medium cut in rings
- Lemon - 4 Wedges
- Sea salt - Pinches
- Black or White Pepper - Pinches
- Garlic Powder - Pinches
- Butter - 2 Tsp
- Olive Oil - As needed
- Parchment Paper - 2 sheets
- Foil Wrap - 2 Pieces
- Dill - As needed
1- Rinse cod with cold water and pat dry with paper towel then place on a plate.
2- You will need two pieces of foil wrap and parchment paper then place the parchment paper on the foil wrap.
3- Cut the medium onion in rings, place equal amount on the parchment paper.
4- Place one piece of cod on the onions, season with salt and pepper, garlic powder, dash of olive oil then one tsp butter, squeeze one lemon wedge over top and place the lemon peel on top of cod.
5- Next step would be to fold the two sides together, foil down the top by rolling down the parchment pinching it tightly together. Then foiled the two sides the same way, after place the cod pouches on a cookie sheet.
6- Place in preheated 350° oven for 40 minutes, when completed remove from oven place the pouches on separate plates. Unwrap the pouches and slide into your plate.
Serve with side dish of choice, garnish with dill.
This delicious cod meal is made with the simplest of ingredients but the taste is so good, this quick and easy dish will take you only 15 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes to cook. Also this meal can be prepared the night before then kept in the fridge and you can take it out the next day after work and place in a 350° for 40 minutes how easy is that.
This is one of many cod recipes I have posted on my website and youtube and each one comes with a full video to follow while making your meal.
This is two cod pouches ready for the oven, and placed on a cookie sheet. I made these with fresh cod fillets you can use frozen cod fillets but let them thaw before using them, clean with cold water and pat dry before placing them on your bed of onion rings.
Don’t be afraid of using more or different seasonings these are the traditional spices I love using and they have a lovely flavour when cooked together. Also you can top each uncooked cod fillet with dill and then wrap into a pouch and then after its cooked top again with dill and a freshly cut lemon.
