Looking for a quick yet tasty meal to make for yourself or the family? This bacon-wrapped cod could not be faster or easier to make. It’s the perfect recipe for those busy weeknights where you don’t have the energy to invest in cooking a long meal. Not only is this dish easy to make, but it’s fancy enough to serve to any dinner guest! I like to serve mine over a bed of white rice and sautéed vegetables, allowing all the flavours of the bacon and vegetables to blend in with the rice.
Bacon-Wrapped Cod | Level: Easy | Serves: 1 |
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 Filet of Cod (if from frozen, defrost it)
4 Slices of Bacon
Fresh Thyme or Rosemary
Your Choice of Accompaniment
WHAT TO DO
Lay your four pieces of bacon flat on the counter so that they are slightly inter-lapped. Place the filet of cod on one end of the bacon and roll it so that the bacon is completely wrapped around. Place the filet in the frying pan and fry for about 8 minutes, flipping the filet occasionally. During the last 2 minutes add in the fresh thyme or rosemary to give it extra flavour. Serve it over a bed of rice and your favourite vegetable side dish.
