Cod Benedict

I was in a hurry to make dinner last night and realized I needed to get creative with what was available - fish and hash brown patties (which were both sadly starring at me from the freezer shelf).

In an instant I saw the vision and began to create. This was a delicious meal that my kids and husband absolutely loved. It reminds me of eggs Benedict with the layering of meat, eggs and Hollandaise sauce over an English muffin. In my case it was codfish fillets and my own creamy sauce over a hash brown patty. I infused flavors of garlic, dill and lemon juice into my creation and it didn't disappoint!

Cod Benedict
  • 4 codfish or halibut fillets (thick cuts)
  • frozen hash brown patties
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • lemon pepper
  • dried dill
  • garlic powder
In a saucepan melt 2 Tbsp of butter and then stir in 2 Tbsp flour. Add 1/2 cup of milk and repeat the process one more time. As sauce begins to thicken, add remaining milk. Stir in 1/2 tsp of lemon pepper, 1/2 tsp of dill, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. Remove from heat, set aside and cover.

Bake hash brown patties in oven according to directions on package (about 15-20 minutes). Make sure they come out crisp.

In a skillet melt a slice of butter. Cook fish fillets until golden on both sides (be careful when turning fish that it doesn't flake and fall apart. Season them in pan with dill, lemon pepper and lemon juice.

Serve fish fillet on hash brown patty and smother with sauce. Serve with spinach or salad. Enjoy!!
