A Dish for Those Who Hate Fish

My husband will not eat fish. Meanwhile, I’ve been known to scarf down a finned-friend for breakfast. I recently threw together an easy dinner that made Hubs say, “If you could make all fish taste like this, I would actually eat it.” I think I deserve an award. 😉

In this recipe, I’ve married my East Coast roots and Southwest flavors with Old Bay and red chile sauce (You could even use my homemade enchilada sauce). I suppose the spice in each disguises “that fishy taste” that fish-haters seem to despise.

I served this crispy cod with mashed sweet potatoes and sautéed broccoli. This dish is paleo/primal friendly!

    It’s me that isn’t so fond of fish, and my husband who is an avid angler and fish-consumer. But this looks tasty, and I love any recipe that includes coconut oil!
