We are on a German kick. Went to Disney Epcot a couple weeks ago, ate in Germany, and my husband has been begging for German food ever since. In fact, Christmas will be a virtual Bavarian buffet if the current plan holds.
This dish is inspired by an item my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed at Epcot Germany – fish baked in a creamy mustard sauce. This could not be any easier to prepare and it is absolutely delicious …provided the fish is well seasoned to begin with I think. Otherwise, it may fall flat. To be honest, I am really feeling that pride that goes with recreating a dish ….and then some. The dill is my extra touch.
German Baked Cod in Mustard Cream
- 1 1/2 lb cod filets
- kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper (I prefer mixed peppercorns for this)
- 1/2 c heavy cream
- 1 1/2 T Dijon
- fresh dell leaves
Heat oven to 350F. Lay the fish in a 13×9 baking dish. Season with salt and pepper (at least 1/4 t salt). Separately, combine the cream and Dijon. Pour over the fish. Top the fish with small torn dill fronds. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serves 4.
