Cod is a delicious fish. It is a firm, flaky, and flavorful fish that is best, in my opinion, kept simple. This recipe for Cod with crispy leeks is just that. A nice simple recipe that allows the cod to be the star. If you like fish, give this recipe a try!
I’m not sure if there’s an easier way to cook fish than what the French call “unilateral.” You just put it in a hot pan, and don’t move it until it’s cooked all the way through. What that means for this cod is one side develops a thick, golden, perfect crust, and the other side is steamed to flaky perfection. I’ve combined the vegetable and the sauce into one, serving the fish on a bed of simply creamed leeks. Soft and subtle and lovely.
