Danish Style Cod

45 mins

Serves 4



I first tried this fabulous fish dish in a small cafe on the coast owned by a lovely Danish couple. This fish in this recipe is melt in the mouth and is complimented in both texture and taste by the bacon. I prefer to use cod here, but any white-oily fish will do. I like to serve it with some boiled new potatoes and broccoli, but it's a dish that will go well with most things
