BAKED COD IN CREAM SAUCE WITH ASPARAGUS & CARROTS

Being busy with an active baby I decided that dinners had to be one that was super quick and easy. Dinner one night was going to be fish, and I decided the best way to cook fish for my busy life was to wrap it in foil; and let the oven do all of the work for me. I made a simple cream sauce to pour on top and I let the delicious sauce infuse into the fish, asparagus and carrots while baking inside a foil bundle. I served this along side rice and let the rice soak up the goodness! If you have a busy life like me than this recipe is definitely for you.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 bundle of asparagus
  • 2 carrots, peeled and quartered lengthways (1 carrot per foiled bundle)
  • 1 shallot, sliced thin
  • 2 small cod fillets
  • 1 can of cream of broccoli soup (use only half the can)
  • coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • few dashes of hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • juice and zest of one lemon (use half the lemon for each bundle)
  • cooked white rice (serve on the side)

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Take two large piece of foil and place it on the cutting board. Take the bundle of asparagus, trim the bottom, and place it on the centre of the foil. Make sure to put half of the bundle of asparagus for each foil bundle. Place the carrots and the sliced shallots and put them on top. Then place the fillet of cod on top of the veggies.


2. In a bowl, combine half the can of broccoli soup, good pinch of salt, black pepper, grated garlic, hot sauce, milk and dijon mustard. Spoon the creamed soup mixture onto each bundle; right on top of the cod. Then sprinkle a little green onion, and zest and juice the lemon right on top as well.

3. Wrap the foil into a tight bundle and place each bundle on a medium sized baking sheet. Place it into the oven and bake it at 375 degrees F for a good 30 minutes. Serve immediately along side some cooked white rice and eat!
