Special request posting. I was asked to shoot a low-carb friendly recipe that requires little work, and only uses simple ingredients. Whew, take away their carbs and they become real demanding, I tell you! I’m happy to oblige, though. This is easy as it gets! Here’s a recipe I bumped into about 5 years ago—when I was an avid low-carber myself—and I’ve been eating it ever since. Mind you, it’s a fairly caloric dish if you’re not on a low carb diet.
This is simple but so colorful and creamy. Though it has very few ingredients, it’s a true flavor bomb!
3 cod fillets
5 tbsp sour cream
2 tsp coarse mustard
3 Roma tomatoes
* I like to serve this fish in individual small baking dishes. You can also use a large baking dish in stead, though. Your call.
Nothing beats fresh codfish. I’ll take fresh cod over steak anytime! Mine was huge; about 15oz. I’ve cut it in three equal parts. Normally I’d buy 3 smaller ones in stead.
Place each cod in a small baking dish and season them with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
I’m using 3 Roma tomatoes for this. Not entirely sure where the third one went off to.
Slice the tomatoes and place them on top of the cod.
Combine 5 slightly heaping tbsp sour cream with 2 slightly heaping tsp coarse mustard. If you’re a high-carber, feel free to use a low fat cream version in stead.
Cheddar. Oh boy, what’s not to love about it? I only wish it wasn’t so ridiculously expensive here. I’ve grated about 5oz. If you’re pressed for time, just grab something like Kraft sharp cheddar. They don’t sell that here, but I’m sure it works like a charm.
Add the cheddar to the sour cream, and spoon an equal amount of the mix on top of each cod.
Bake them in a preheated oven at 400F (200C) for 25 minutes. This does depend on the thickness of your cod fillets, so keep an eye on them! They are great! Juicy fish, with slightly roasted tomatoes in a creamy, golden cheddar bath with a slight mustard twist. These are so good with a broccoli dish on the side!
Because life just ain’t easy without pringles.
For my low-carber friends, with lots of love!
