This a wonderful dish that not only tastes delicious but provides a beautiful presentation when served to your guests. Depending on what part of the world you live in Cod can either be a reasonably priced fish, or it can be a bit on the expensive side. If that is the case, feel free to substitute it out for a different species. Just make sure it is a mild, flaky, white fish.
