Garlic Roasted Cod with Mashed-Potato Crust
Bread crumbs, cornmeal, batter of all sorts—it's not surprising to find a crust on a fish, but this one's a bit unusual. Buttery, creamy mashed potatoes are spread on fillets, which are roasted and then broiled until the topping is a tempting golden brown. Slideshow: Cod Recipes
Fish Alternatives Use other relatively thick, white-fleshed fillets in place of the cod. Good choices include grouper, haddock, orange roughy, red snapper, and turbot.
This comforting dish will find its ideal wine soul mate in just about any Chardonnay. Try a bottle from California or a more refined version—a Rully, Montagny, or Mâcon-Villages,for example—from southern Burgundy in France.
