This recipe is from Frank Melseth, SandPoint Alaska. He is the Captain of a fishing boat. He shared the recipe in National Fisherman, a commercial fishing publication. He said the crew loves it and it is easy to do. I use an applewood smoked bacon and have made it a dozen times.
- Saute the chopped bacon and onion for about 10 minutes over medium heat.
- Add salt and peppered cod to pan, moving the bacon and onion mixture around the fillets, reduce heat a little and turn the cod over in about 5 minutes.
- Continue to cook the cod until it flakes easy.
- Remove the cod, bacon, onions to a warm serving dish, and set aside, covering the fillets.
- Reduce the heat to low and add flour and butter, stirring to brown the flour.
- Add the milk and stir until it makes a thick brown gravy.
- Ladle gravy over fillets and bacon, onion mixture.
- Potatoes or rice go well with this dish.
- Have the fishmonger cut the blood line from the fish-and I use an applewood smoked thick bacon.
