Snowed In Pecan Crusted Cod Recipe

Here is the final installment in the Snowed In recipe series that spontaneously occurred when the Midwest had some extremely low temperatures and high snow/ice accumulations last week.  I was forced to get a little creative and came up with some great recipes to share with all of you.

Pecan Crusted Cod


1/2 cup pecans, chopped/crushed

1/4 cup bread crumbs or panko

2 cod fillets

2 tablespoons olive oil (could sub coconut oil)

1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 garlic clove, minced

sea salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line pan with aluminum foil and coat lightly with cooking spray or brushed olive oil.

Combine crushed pecans, bread crumbs, garlic, lemon, sea salt, pepper thoroughly in a shallow dish or plate.

Add olive oil to cod fillets by gently brushing on.  Add cod fillets to shallow dish/plate and coat with crumb and pecan mixture.  Place coated fillets on aluminum foil covered pan.

Bake until fish is firm, about 13-15 minutes depending on fillet size and thickness.

I served the fish with a side of steamed broccoli that I topped with a homemade red onion garlic sauce.

While I’m glad we’re no longer snowed in, it was fun pushing myself to create new recipes with things I had on hand.

If you were snowed in and only had access to the items in your fridge and pantry, what would you make?
