Though I have been posting quite a number of cod fish recipes, but I never seem to get tired of them. And I can finish one whole piece of cod all by myself !! So you can imagine my penchant for it. And because I haven’t been feeling well recently, I decide to go on something light with the cooking. I actually had it steamed like the Hong Kong style and pairing it with some nutritious wolfberries, scallions and ginger. To add a bit of twist to it, I fried the ginger strips to a real crisp and top it over the fish. Just a very small portion of it though.
The sauce was a good fit with the light steaming, exactly the kind of Hong Kong style of steamed fish that I was looking into and the scallions and ginger that was steamed together adds a refreshing touch to it. I have been trying several ways of cooking cod fish, you can find them here and here. All in all, this should be the easiest one that I have attempted and also definitely the healthiest !
I love this fish right to the last bit of it and if you are going for a light diet, this dish is somewhat very nutritious and healthy for all that purposes. And you can imagine I sip the sauce right down to the last drop with my rice !!
As compared to frozen ones, which are only available in smaller parts and pieces, this fresh cod from PurelyFresh is definitely worth every single penny since the option to choose for an entire block of cod fish is freely available !
