A couple of Sundays ago, I had a lovely stroll around Boston which included a trip to Whole Foods where I bought a nice looking piece of cod. I had seen Courtney from Barefoot in Boston cook some panko crusted cod up on her blog and thought I would try my hand at it. I cook a lot of things well but fish is one of those things that I've never really felt comfortable cooking so thanks to Courtney for her post.
I rubbed the cod with dijon mustard, sprinkled it with salt and pepper, then coated it with lemon zest and panko breadcrumbs. I baked it in the oven at around 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
I made a fresh tomato and basil salad with these gorgeous summer ripe tomatoes and really fruity olive oil.
Then I cooked up some green beans and cheated with a box of Near East rice pilaf. It was really delicious and I especially loved the flavor from the dijon mustard and lemon zest.
If fish isn't your thing, on another night I made boneless chicken breasts the same way and they too were quite delicious.
