Best type of food, easy, quick, healthy, delicious.

Stuart says:

He is right about the cod. Supermarket cod and even many fishmonger poached is tasteless. Looks like I'll have to hang out at the harbour in Whitby to get my fresh cod.

So simple and tastes like a 5 star fish. The key to dining at its best!

Soney Liston says:

Hes right, I used manky smelly one month old cod, not the fresh stuff, it turned out real bad…

Rod McDonald says:

Simple and delirious.

CS says:

Add a boiled egg and steamed cabbage, use salted dried cod instead of fresh and drizzle it with olive oil instead of butter and you'll have made the traditional Portuguese Christmas main course. Sprinkle it with freshly chopped garlic if you're a grown man, because o bacalhau quer alho

This is so right.

Knute M says:

Jamie, here's a slightly simpler recipe as taught to me when I was living in Norway: Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil, turn OFF the heat and immediately drop in your fresh cod steak or thick fillet. Let it remain in the hot water for exactly 10 minutes and then remove… it's done! If it was a steak the skin will easily slip off and the single spine bone will pull right out, leaving you with the most delicious, succulent fish you have ever eaten. Dip it in salted butter. It certainly is not bland.
This technique works equally well with Halibut and a few other fish, but NOT all types. I've tried and failed with salmon and Pacific "cod" for instance, but it was no go.
Thanks, Jamie for showing this way to make perfect fish! Most everybody else seems to only know to fry or bake fish.

Noogabar says:

well im never going to have "fresh fresh cod"

BucketBrain1 says:

I did the same, but with extra-virgin olive oil, and a few beans tossed with garlic and regular olive oil. Because I guess I just love to complicate things.
I love the idea of keeping it simple though: a few veg treated well. I don't think I'll ever go back to fish and chips from a store after how I felt after eating this.

Stephanie Conn says:

What happens if the cod is not super-fresh? I don't always have access to that. Looks gorgeous here, though!
