You’ve heard us talk previously on the blog about the versatility and health benefits of white fish. Cod, haddock, tilapia, sole, monkfish, Alaskan Pollock, halibut and sea bass are all delicious and nutritious options that can be used interchangeably. That’s because these fish all have a similar mild taste, allowing for seamless, simple substitutes in pretty much any recipe. So, when we came across this gorgeously glazed Roasted White Fish with Citrus from “What Should I Make For…,” we knew we had to give it a try.
Not surprisingly, we weren’t disappointed. Incredibly flavorful, this dish is tart and tangy, with just a hint of sweetness. Effortlessly elegant, this easy-to-make white fish feature will wow your Sunday dinner guests without forcing you to spend much time at all in the kitchen. Can you ask for anything more out of a recipe?
While this particular version calls for cod or halibut, you can easily swap those out for your preferred white fish. Pro tip: See what’s on sale at your grocery store’s fish counter this week and make your selection based on what’s available. If you’ve already made up your mind on which white fish you’ll be serving, don’t forget to check the freezer section.
