I have to admit – I love Cod. Baked Cod. Steamed Cod. Cod of any kind. But this Broiled Cod, seriously tops this list. It’s just THE BEST.
WHEN THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY: GRAB COD
The world is going crazy right now. I mean, someone pinch me. You mean there’s no toilet paper left in the last 4 stores I went to and that’s all I actually (seriously) need right now?!?! This is when grocery shopping and meals gotta step their game up. I ain’t waiting an hour in line just to make the same ol’ pasta dish I made last week, you know what I’m saying? Although, for some reason, pasta is the first thing we chose to so-called stockpile (can’t believe I’m even admitting that) so there WILL be lots of pasta eating in this house in the near future. (Helllllllo, Pasta with Cauliflower and Bacon!)
I gotta admit – it takes a loooong time for something to hit me. I can’t get over the paranoid shoppers hoarding groceries as if the world is actually going to end. You seriously can’t move around the stores any more than I remember being able to move during any Steve Aoki set back in the day. I (shamefully) admittedly joined in on the madness but ONLY cause I felt like if I didn’t, nothing would be left for me. But I took what I needed and went on about my week (dreading ever entering another grocery store for the next month…)
I couldn’t help but laugh peering in carts that belonged to panicked people. If the world was actually going to end – if this was actually an apocalypse or your last time grocery shopping – what would make it into your cart? Cod, among other things, was a definite must for me. It’s easy, sooo tasty and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry pre-chaos which is an automatic plus. It can be frozen and taken out if you ever find yourself in a troubled situation…like not being able to leave the house.
WHY I LOVE BROILED COD
I mean just look at the recipe card down below. Have you seen anything easier?! Broiled Cod is sooo simple yet sooo elegant. It just takes any meal to the next level. Has people thinking you must have slaved in the kitchen for hours. And the taste? Yup. The taste. You can customize it to your liking depending on what’s in your pantry but I bet you already have all the ingredients listed below. So, go on, brave the panic and buy the cod. You won’t be sorry.
