Expert Tips

Cod is a lean, mild-flavored fish. Found in the ocean, it can range in size from 1 1/2 to 100 pounds. It is usually available year round.

Instead of chopping fresh garlic, purchase chopped garlic in a jar in the produce department. The correct substitution measurement can be found on the jar label.

Serve the fish with a fresh spinach salad tossed with apples and poppy seed dressing.
