Roasted Cod Filets with Potatoes, Spring Onions, and Lemon-Herb Compound Butter

I was trying to think of a dish, or two, that would complement my Lemon-Herb Compound Butter. I settled, first, on fish...because I had some cod filets in my fridge.

Ingredients serves 4

  • 4 cod filets
  • 2 spring onions
  • 6 to 8 baby Dutch yellow potatoes (or whatever you have on hand)
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 T fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • olive oil
  • 4 thin slices of Lemon-Herb Compound Butter

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Wash and dry your potatoes. Slice them thinly and toss with olive oil. Lay them in the bottom of a baking dish and roast them for 16 to 18 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooking, trim the ends off the spring onions and slice them thinly lengthwise. Lay the onions on top of the potatoes. Place the cod filets on top of the onions. Sprinkle them with fresh dill, then drizzle them with the lemon juice and a splash of olive oil. Roast them for another 16 to 18 minutes.

The fish is done when it is firm to the touch. Be careful not to cook the filets too long, or they will dry out.

To serve, spoon the potato-onion mixture in the bottom of your dish. Place the fish on top and garnish with a thin slice of compound butter. The butter will melt, leaving the herbs, lemon zest, and a trail of incredible flavor wherever the butter drips.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
