Cornmeal and Breadcrumbs Cod Dinner

Seafood, yet again! I promise to give the ocean a break after this recipe. In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy this simple, quick and easy dinner.


1lb Fresh Cod Fillets
1/2 Cup of Breadcrumbs
1/2 Cup of Cornmeal
1 Lg Egg
1 Lg Jamaican Sweet Potato (Oriental Potato)
1Tbsp Butter
1lb Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrot mix
1Tbsp Seafood Seasoning
Parmesan Cheese
Dried Parsley
Salt and Black Pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash potato and cut into four pieces, opening in the potato in half and then again cutting across. Place the potato in the preheated oven with the inner sides facing the grill for 25 minutes. Season cod with, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper and set aside. Beat egg, and combine the breadcrumb and cornmeal mix to form an assembly line with a cookie sheet at the end. Drench cod in egg wash and then roll in breadcrumb and cornmeal mix. Once all of the cod pieces have been coated, top with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Bake for 17-20 minutes.

Cut vegetable into small pieces and add to a pan with butter, salt and 2tbsp of water and simmer for 5 minutes on medium heat.

Sweet potato should be tender, and sweet with a waxy texture. Cod should be golden brown and meat flaky when done.

If you like spicy food like me, you can substitute cayenne pepper for the black pepper. And, dinner is ready, just like that.
