2 pounds baking potatoes (about 4), peeled and cut into chunks
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup heavy cream, light cream, or milk
2 pounds cod fillets, cut to make 4 pieces
2 teaspoons cooking oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
Heat the oven to 450&176;. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil and continue boiling until tender, about 15 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and put them back into the saucepan along with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Mash the potatoes over very low heat, gradually incorporating the butter and cream.
Rub the cod with the oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Put the cod in a large roasting pan, sprinkle the fillets with the garlic, and then spread with the mashed potatoes. Roast until the fish is nearly done, 8 to 10 minutes for 3/4-inch-thick fillets.
Heat the broiler. Broil the fish until the mashed potatoes have a golden brown crust, about 2 minutes.
Fish Alternatives Use other relatively thick, white-fleshed fillets in place of the cod. Good choices include grouper, haddock, orange roughy, red snapper, and turbot.
Did you know Ginger and Mango both boost your metabolism? Along with
boosting your metabolism ginger also is a natural pain reliever, from
migraines to menstrual cramps ginger heals a lot of pain. It also helps
reduce morning or motion sickness and banishes heart burn! Mangos not
only boost metabolism, they also aid in digestion, boost your memory and
increases your sex drive! This one little drink will do a lot for your
body, so make a big pitcher today and enjoy.
I have made this in a 2 liter pitcher, in a giant sun tea container
and in a cleaned out venti Starbucks cup. This recipe is for the
largest, the 4 liter sun tea pitcher. If you want to do a smaller
pitcher cut the recipe in half, in a small cup use just one very thin
slice of ginger and 1/8 cup mango.
You can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have
to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so
if I can’t get mango…
