Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce



This Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce is another EatingWell recipe that my husband made for me while I was in meetings.  It was quite tasty & pretty fast & easy to make.  We used Tilapia instead of Cod.

What Fish Could You Substitute For Cod?

The best substitutes for cod are tilapia or flounder.

You could also substitute haddock in fish and chips.


Is Cod A Healthy Sea Food?

Cod does not contain high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, but it is low in mercury and can be a nutritious part of a healthy diet.


Is Shallot The Same As Onion?

Shallots and onions are in the same family, but there is a difference in the flavor.

Shallots have a sweet and mild (although pronounced) flavor, with a hint of garlic.

Onions have more of a bite than shallots.
