Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. The butter should ideally be at room temperature to make it simple to make the herb butter, so consider taking the butter out of the fridge 30-60 minutes before starting.
  2. Start by making the pink herb butter. Mix all ingredients with a fork or a handmixer, set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  4. Split the Brussels sprouts in half and place in a baking dish. Pour over olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Split the mushrooms in two or four, depending on size and fry in butter with thyme for a few minutes. Add capers and fry for a couple of more minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Remove the baking dish with the Brussels sprouts and add the fried mushrooms on top.
  7. Salt and pepper the cod pieces and place on top of the vegetables. Add generous amounts of pink herb butter to the fish. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the fish is ready – probe with a fork or knife.

    Fish is in danger to disappear from the seas because of todays fishingships so this is unfortunately a bad route to choose. Then you choose almost fat free cod! That is kind of too ... much to handle in lack of brainpower.

    Fish is made in factories nowadays. Just like beef and other that kind of stuff. But there is beef that is brought up with grass only. Stay away from the fish people! You are killing the planet!

    Just a little wonder...
    The herbbutter looks to have a bit red dots..chilli?
    It is not in the recepie but guess I can put what I want in it.
    That also mean that the red I see on the cod is the chilli or is it rosepepper?

    In New Zealand we live on fish and it is plentiful to catch your quota for 3 meals a week plus sharing your catch with family and friends. If we couldn't catch it we wouldn't eat it and certainly wouldn't buy mashed up what ever is left over fish as you have mentioned. Yes we worldwide deplete stocks but by the recreational fisherman not being greedy, surely it will make a difference and allow fish to spawn and replenish our oceans.

    I did my shopping this weekend for two people for week 2 of the challenge. The shopping list (for 2) listed 3 1/4 pounds of white fish which I purchased. However, the fish dish for this week for 4 servings (2 people with lunch for the second day) only calls for a 1 1/2pds - why does the shopping list call out so much?!

    Did you find the rose pepper? If so, where?

    This was an interesting combination of flavors that left me feeling pretty full and satisfied. I should of used cod for this recipe but instead I used sole, which turned out to be slightly thinner and flakier than tilapia. The sole was cut very thin but it layered perfectly on top of the vegetables like of like a crust but it felt apart way to easily after trying to serve it. Overall it was a good dish and I look forward to trying again with cod.

    As a general rule, I try to stay away from baking fish, especially white fish. Other fish you can get away with that somewhat. After trying this, I am going to stick to that rule. This made the veggies taste like rotten fish. The fish itself was not good. I am not sure why people have enjoyed it. As someone who fishes a lot, baking fish is terrible.

    Now buy the extremely rare pink peppercorn for one meal? I spent 200 at the grocery store buying the stuff for the first 2 weeks. I still find myself going to the store every other day to buy somthing else and you dont give substitutes. I wish the materials list had a bit more common. I can buy this stuff on amazon for like 10 dollars. The thing about diets to lose weight is... you lose motivation when you cant get an item on the list (pink peppercorns, celery root, chipotle paste)... please include substitutes!
