Quick Baked Cod and Cornbread


When cooking potatoes, it pays to boil them first to give them a head start before sauteeing, so the inside is nice and fluffy and the outside gets wonderfully crispy. Here the potatoes are sauteed (after being boiled) along with cod until golden, and then transferred to a baking dish, sprinkled with breadcrumbs made from cornbread, and then baked to produce a crunchy topping. Serve immediately accompanied by a mixed green salad.
