Warm Me Up Recipe for a Cold Day

Chorizo-Crusted Cod


1 ½ ounces Spanish Chorizo, peeled and thinly sliced

½ cup coarse dry bread crumbs

Salt and fresh pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

4- 6 oz. cod or halibut fillets about 1 ½ in thick


  • Preheat over to 400 degrees
  • In a food processor combine chorizo and bread crumbs
  • Season with salt and pepper and transfer crumbs to a plate
  • Lightly oil a glass or ceramic baking dish
  • Dip flesh side of fish in crumbs, pressing to adhere
  • Arrange crumb side up
  • Pack the remaining crumbs on top
  • Roast in oven for 20 minutes uncovered
  • Broil 6 in front heat for 30 seconds to brown top of crumbs
  • Serve right away
This is a very easy preparation and is always delicious. On a cold day like today, it's wonderful served with a side of pasta tossed in olive oil or sauteed spinach and a hearty bread.
