The following fish recipe yields a delicious, garlic infused, parsley sauce and delicate, moist cod.  Our cod sautéed in olive oil with parsley and garlic recipe does call for a good amount of olive oil but it forms the base of the green sauce as well as the basting liquid so we suggest you incorporate the entire 1/4 cup of olive oil.

Cod is a very easy fish to prepare requiring little manipulation, not to mention it’s sweet flavor profile and lean consistency.  Many Italians consume both dried and salted cod fish (Pesce stocco, the dried not salted cod fish, is often confused with baccalà which is dried salted cod fish) but we think the fresh variety is superior.

  1. Love this. What would you serve on the side?

  2. Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – as70
