Nutty Drunken Cod

"For those who like cheese and wine,so does this fish! Try brandy or white vermouth instead of the wine,for more crunch substitute flaked almonds for the pine nuts.We enjoy this with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc."

  1. This was awsome...easy to make, great taste, low in carbs and converted to serving a single serving easily. (hate left overs) I just had to join recipezaar just to comment on this. Being single I find it hard not to depend on fast food. I have made a promise to myself to seek out recipes and try them. This is a keeper.
  2. Excellant. Great flavor, texture and presentation. The bacon, cheeses and wine add a wonderful rich flavor that combines perfectly with the sweetness of the red peppers and the nutty crunch of the pine nuts. I made the recipe as directed, sustituting haddock for the cod and served it with Fabulous Frozen Green Beans #37780. I will add this to my book of magic tricks - it's a delightful and easy way to dress up most any white fish.
  3. Really quite good and really quite fattening! I will definitely make this again, although not often because of the fat content, although what do you expect from something with so much cheese? The brie went wonderfully with the white wine and bacon and the red pepper was a nice finishing touch. It is a more subtle dish than I usually make and the presentation is lovely. Thanks for posting!
  4. I am sorry but this didnt do it for us...I first had to take all of the brie off because it tasted odd with the fish, and the rest was just so so.
  5. One of the best recipes for fish we've had. Scrumptious! Didn't have the pine nuts, fabulous anyway. Also, used red bell peppers and Mondavi's Cabernet Sauvignon - perfect with the brie. I put some previously cooked new potatoes in the dish with the fish and they were great with the cheese & wine. Thanks so much - we'll do this a lot!


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
