Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place cod fillets in the bottom of a 8x8x2 buttered oven dish.Place dish on a cookie sheet pan because there will be sauce that escapes and runs down the outside of the casserole dish.
  2. Make a cheese sauce by mixing 2 oz each of butter and flour, 1/2 liter of milk and 3 1/2 oz grated cheese cook till slightly thickened: pour over fish.
  3. Top with mashed potatoes sprinkle grated cheese over them and dot with butter.
  4. Bake in a hot oven (450 F) for 25-30 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown.
  5. Optional -- I just made this again and put in 2 sliced scallions into the cheese sauce after it was cooked{step #2}.Garnish with scallions.
  6. Optional -- 1/2- 1 cup peeled and deviened Shrimp added unto the fish gives some added flavor as well!

Very good! The sauce made mashed potatoes to liquid, but when it is cooler, it will be more in one piece. Anyway, it tasted great! The cheese in top made the nice tasty crust!

The flavor was fantastic. (I used havarti.) However, I didn't make the mash thick enough; it melted into the sauce. You definitely want to make thick mashed potatoes for this. In addition, the fish wasn't done when the top was browned. That really surprised me. I took it out and microwaved it for 90 seconds. My sister, who cooks more than I do, said that she thought the fish should have been seared before placing in the sauce. However, other people making this recipe obviously didn't have a problem with that. Maybe it's because I used previously-frozen fillets?

This is great comfort food. I chose a mix of sharp cheddar for the sauce and parmesan for the top. I used salt cod, 1 lb that i soaked for 2 days in advance, then i boiled it for 8 minutes, and flaked it. i sauteed some shallots, scallions and 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, and added it to the cod. i made and added the sauce, topped with the taters and parm- enjoyed by all.
