Recipe by ILefkowitz
This is a hearty flavorful cod dish that is easy and quick to make. The unique scent and flavor of the smoked paprika combined with the Asiago cheese makes for a different flavor profile. A side of penne pasta mixed with garlic, sundried tomatoes and kalamata olives, some sauteed zucchini along with a nice big salad and some fresh bread would round out the meal. A nice crisp white wine such as a Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with this.
