Recipe by Chef Stephan Schulz

Chef’s Note: When you purchase Cod, ask for “once Frozen Cod.” If the Cod is twice frozen or more, the cells in the Cod meat are broken down and the Cod meat absorbs more moisture so quality and flavour diminish. Once-frozen Cod or any fish is better to use when buying from a fish monger/grocery store. Fresh fish is always the best to use.

• Cod loin (113 g=4 oz portion)
• Cherry tomatoes (10 to 12)
• One large potato
• Capers (1 teaspoon)
• Graded Parmesan cheese (28g=1 oz)
• Asparagus (quarter bundle)
