Saucy Cod Fillets Florentine
Best Sunday Supper Seafood Recipes. Saucy Cod Fillets Florentine is a different and delicious way to enjoy fresh cod fillets. Not only is this recipe fairly inexpensive to make, it’s a great low-cal meal option. Fresh cod fillets are wrapped around slices of fontina cheese and fresh asparagus spears, then topped with a simple, yet delicious tomato sauce. The cod fillets are nestled on blanched fresh baby spinach and all is served on top of a bed of hot cooked angel hair pasta. Delicious!
Make it your own…
If you and your family aren’t big fans of asparagus, not to worry, use scallions, haricots verts or baby rainbow carrots instead. I have also made this recipe with the same excellent results simply by replacing the fresh cod fillets with turkey or veal cutlets. Keep in mind that cooking times will vary when substituting cutlets for the cod fillets and also when replacing the asparagus spears with different vegetables.
