Cod with Tomatoes and Fennel
After a long summer vacation and two trips to the States, California and New York, I am back. One of the many things I missed while visiting the States, was fish. Living in a little fishing village in North Sealand, Danmark, the first thing I bought was Cod. We eat a lot of cod in Denmark. It is the most economical important fisk in the North Atlantic area. Cod can be prepared in many different ways and is the most important ingredient in fish cakes. In this recipe, you can use catfish, haddock or halibut.
