{September 29, 2008}   Birthday Cod

Hubster one more time. From the 6 year olds Birthday dinner.

1 1/2 lbs cod
6 oz of sundried tomato pesto (Classico)
bacon to wrap

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spoon pesto on top of cod to make a layer about 1/4 inch thick. Wrap bacon around cod and brown on all sides in a saute pan. Bake in oven, pesto side up, for approximately 15 minutes until fish is white and flakes easily. Serve

[notes from cejay: this will use a somewhat large quantity of bacon, you want to completely wrap the fish in bacon so you can no longer see what is inside–just bacon sealed upon bacon like wrapping a gift… and realistically, I suppose it is to keep the pesto in and the fish moist or something but since the bluejay is indeed my son this is not light on the bacon… and when you are “browning” this is really crisping it up… when he went to turn it and the bacon tried to flop away he said “nevermind, it’s not browned enough” so you should be aware you are crisping the bacon around the fish not just goldening it… and he did this over a HIGH heat, like searing, and then drained off the bacon grease before baking to temp–he used the thermometer because of the whack-job oven so while the time is likey still right because he’s all mr. chefypants seafood this is not how long it took us…]
