This recipe was easy and attractive, and the vegetable part of it tasted very good. However, I think cod is the wrong fish for the recipe. The veggies and seasonings are so sweet that I personally would prefer a fish with sweeter flesh than cod -- the cod tasted almost sour compared to the sweet veggies. I'd like to make it again, maybe with grouper or some other sweet fish. Alternatively, the veggies alone would make a very nice side dish!
