Well, packing day is finally here! I have two lovely ladies here right now packing all our stuff up, and then tomorrow I hit the road with Jango Puppy for CT (well, Maryland for the night, then CT on Wednesday). I love when we get nice movers. Hopefully the loading crew Heath deals with on Wednesday is just as nice.
I'm trying not to think about leaving my Bubba for three weeks though (he and Daddy-O will be here for another week then they're heading to Disney World for a week and a half before coming up). I know they'll have a great time, and it'll be nice to be able to get the house together without any interruption, but I'm gonna miss them both like crazy.
Anyway though...Panko Crusted Cod. Good stuff. I love panko, so I'm pretty sure you could cover and old shoe in the stuff and I'd recommend it, but we all really liked this. I can't remember ever buying cod before, but it's super easy to work with and cooks up fast. Very flaky and light.
The original recipe for the sage butter called for sage leaves, but I couldn't find any, so I just used rubbed sage. Turned out just fine.
Ok guys, I'll be gone for a couple days while traveling, but I'll try and be back Thursday with a post. Have a great week and to all my friends and family at home, I'll see you soon!!
'Panko Crusted Cod with Sage Butter'
Source: Adapted from Lifes Ambrosia
1 pound cod fillets
salt and pepper
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1. Rinse and pat dry the cod fillets. Slice into 3 inch pieces. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Beat the eggs in another shallow dish and place the bread crumbs in a large zip-lock bag.
3. Dredge each piece of fish in the flour, then the egg, then drop into the bread crumbs bag. Seal bag and shake until all cod pieces are coated.
4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook fish 5–7 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
5. While the fish is cooking, melt butter over low heat. Once butter is melted add rubbed sage and simmer until fish is cooked.
6. Once fish is cooked through, transfer to a plate and spoon sage butter over the top. Serve.
