Breaded Cod Filet with Young Potatoes

Breaded Cod with Young Potatoes

A classic fish recipe, I am sure many of us know how to bread filets,
and I have to say cod is one of my favorites. The white meat is so delicate,
and it's a very healthy fish, too! Delicious in flavor and great for a quick dinner,
cod served with young, small potatoes that do not need to be mashed.
For some reason, fried fish, even though I eat it all year round, reminds
me of summers spent at the beach in New Jersey.

*2 Servings
1. Two Small Fresh Cod Filets
2. 6-7 Young Potatoes (the very small ones, in-season now)
3. Handful of Lettuce
4. ~10 Thin Red Bell Pepper slices
5. Fresh Chives, chopped
6. Plain White Flour
7. 1 Egg
8. Bread Crumbs
9. Vegetable Oil
10. Salt 
11. Pepper
12. Lemon Slices and Lemon Juice



1. Clean cod filets and dry. Make sure the fish is dried!
2. Add salt and pepper to taste to both sides of filet, and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice.
3. Set aside the filets. During this time, peel potatoes and start cooking them. Add salt to the water.
4. Prepare flour, breadcrumbs, and one whisked egg on separate plates.
5. First, cover filet with flour.
6. Next, place the filet in the egg.
7. Transfer the filet onto the dish with breadcrumbs. Cover entire filet with breadcrumbs. 
8. Repeat these steps with second filet.
9. Heat pan with a decent amount of vegetable oil. The oil should be hot.
10. If your cod filets are large, you may want to cut them into halves or they might break apart on the pan.
11. Place one filet at a time on the hot pan with oil. The fish should turn gold within a minute if not less.
12. Lower the heat, and flip the filet onto the other side. Continue frying until golden brown.
13. The potatoes should be cooked by now. Drain and serve with cod filets. 
14. Wash a few leaves of lettuce and slice some red bell peppers as a side. 
15. Sprinkle plate with some freshly chopped chives.

  1. What a Wonderful Dinner! I love Cod and Haddock and make them both often. Also living on a Lake in Northern WI, I like to use fresh Perch and Walleye~ Delicious~Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines

  2. I love fish...This one looks so tasty..Would like to have one piece. :)

  3. Mam identyczne skojarzenia jeśli chodzi o smażone ryby. W NJ nie byłam ^^ ale nad każdą ogólnie rozumianą "wodą" smakują tak samo - wakacyjnie, inaczej. Za mną rybcia chodzi już od paru dni więc pewnie dziś też jakąś usmażę bo nawet mam.
    Co do opalania - ja już wczoraj złapałam trochę słonka, jednak zauważyłam, że robi się coraz bardziej uciążliwe. Kiedyś mogłam przeleżeć pół dnia na słońcu dopóki nie spaliłam się na przysłowiową czekoladkę. Teraz ledwo wytrzymuję godzinę, więc pewnie będzie to dość dłuuugi proces :)

  4. Love the way you have prepared this whole complete meal. Cod fish are expensive over here and am thinking of over varieties for the same style. The crispy coated fish is really flavorful and of course we can't say no to potatoes and the rest paired together.

  5. Wspaniały obiad :) uwielbiam rybki, a do tego młode ziemniaczki :) Mniam :)

  6. Same pysznosci:))
    Uwielbiam ryby!

  10. Gdzie nauczyłaś się tak gotować? Dosłownie każdy przepis mnie powala :) I nie wiem, po co są te wszystkie przepisy Knorra itd. skoro jest Twój blog :) Naprawdę nie sądziłam, że kiedykolwiek zacznę gotować, a z Tobą jest dużo prościej i smaczniej :)
