Baked cod with mixed vegetables in a light curry and lemon sauce, delicious!
Cod is an awesome fish, it has a mild flavor, a firm flesh and can be cooked a thousand delicious ways.
Here I brushed my cod loin with olive oil, seasoned it with salt and pepper, covered with a few fennel stalks and baked it at 400°F (200°C) for just 12 minutes and it was perfectly cooked, how quick is that?
I served it with a mix of fresh fennels, tomatoes, sautéed potatoes and a creamy curry and lemon sauce, very flavorful.
3 tomatoes, halved
3 small fennels, cleaned, quartered and cored, keep the nicest herbs
3 potatoes, sliced
A few green asparagus to decorate
2/3 cup (150 ml) hot stock/broth
1 tsp corn starch
Zest and juice of one lemon
1/4 cup (50 ml) white wine
1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
1 tsp curry powder (or to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
28.21 oz. (800 g) cod loin

Some olive oil
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C), brush a baking pan with olive oil, add the cod loin, brush loin with olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with fennel herbs
Into the oven for 12 minutes
Take out of the oven and set aside into the baking pan, the cod will finish cooking with the residual heat
In the meantime, season the halved tomatoes with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with parsley
Into a large frying pan and on medium high heat, heat some olive oil, add fennels, tomatoes and green asparagus (remove asparagus as soon as cooked through), season with salt and pepper, add some water just to cover the bottom of pan, add water whenever needed, towards the end when vegetables are almost cooked through, let the water completely evaporate
Into another saucepan, on medium high heat, heat some vegetable oil, sautéed potatoes until golden and crisp, season with salt and pepper to taste
Add the cornstarch to the hot broth, stir well
Into a small saucepan, on medium/high heat, add the broth, lemon juice and white wine, curry powder, stir well, bring to boil and reduce liquids to half
Add the heavy cream and lemon zest, stir, bring to boil, boil away for a minute, remove from heat, season with salt and pepper to taste
Pour the sauce into the baking pan and distribute all the vegetables around the cod loin, drizzle some olive oil
