What’s for dinner? Cod with Soy-Mustard Glaze

Last night Sheryl told me to bring home something for dinner. I wanted something healthy, so I headed to Fry’s Marketplace to look for some fish. They had, in the seafood department, recipe cards. I looked through them and found one for cod with soy-mustard glaze. It sounded good, and grabbed a pound of cod. I grabbed some rolls, a side dish, and headed home. I don’t cook a lot… but when I do, watch out. The prep time was only 5 minutes, and it only took 10 minutes to make, but it was fun making the sauce from scratch. There is a picture on the recipe card, but the fish didn’t end up looking like that. Oh well, it was still delicious!

Sheryl didn’t care for it. She apparently doesn’t like mustard. However, the mustard flavor wasn’t obvious. I paired the fish with some red potatoes and some broccoli cheese pasta. Oh, and I opened a nice bottle of wine to go with it. It was good, and even though Sheryl doesn’t like mustard, I got to finish her fish. Score! If you are interested in trying this at home, the ingredients and recipe is below. Great… now I’m hungry.

2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. coarse ground mustard
1 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
2 (4-oz.) cod fillets

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. For the glaze, in a small saucepan combine soy sauce, mustard, honey, and vinegar over medium-high heat; bring to boiling. Cook 3 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.

2. Place fillets in baking pan; brush with glaze. Bake 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve warm.

This dish serves 4 to 6 people and only has 110 calories per serving. Oh, and a TON of protein. 21g of protein, to be exact. The meal was light, and even though Sheryl didn’t finish her fish, I didn’t walk away hungry. Maybe writing about my recipe will encourage me to cook more. I hope you’re hungry!
