Leave a comment

This Recipe was based on the recipe in The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 200-300-400 Calorie Meals by Heidi Reichenberger McIndoo and Ed Jackson

Long before the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts, Europeans fished for cod off the coast of New England. They salted and preserved it for the long journey home. Here in Massachusetts today, we have plenty of fresh cod but we tend to fry it and use it as a vehicle for tartar sauce. Here is a version of cod that mimics the crisp texture of frying, yet is low fat. And the fish is accented with bright lemon and fresh parsley flavors so it doesn’t need a high-calorie sauce.
