Recipe by Khandi Howard

This recipe started out as The Chancery Pub and Restaurant Cod Dinner, but I changed it up a bit and added a cream sauce that I think 'makes' it. This is really very simple. It is best to make the garlic wine butter ahead of time and you can also cut up the vegetables - this is the most time consuming part of the entire meal. Once you have prepared the vegetables, the meal comes together very quickly and it is truly delicious. This is a meal fit for company.
