[b:1zkkxmdi]Red cod plentiful, affordable
[/b:1zkkxmdi][size=9]The Press | Thursday, 17 May 2007[/size:1zkkxmdi]
[b:1zkkxmdi] A bag of red-cod fillets had KATE FRASER wondering what to do with this plentiful, affordable, but sloppy white fish.
[/b:1zkkxmdi] Sloppy in fish terms means the flesh is delicate and flakes easily. I decided on butter, crumbs, garlic and lemon.
[b:1zkkxmdi]Try this: [/b:1zkkxmdi]
[b:1zkkxmdi]Melt 25g unsalted butter in the microwave or frypan. Turn the fillets in the butter to coat well, then put in the refrigerator while you whizz 2-3 slices of bread (any bread) in a food processor with 1-2 handfuls of parsley tops, and the peeled rind of a lemon (without a food processor, crumble the bread slices and chop the parsley, garlic and lemon rind as finely as possible, then combine). Spread the crumb mixture on waxed paper, add the buttered fish fillets, and turn, patting the crumbs firmly into all sides of the fish. Lightly oil an oven dish large enough to take all the fish fillets in one layer. Arrange fish in the dish, sprinkle with salt to taste and bake uncovered in a 200deg oven for 10-12 minutes. Serve with garlic mayonnaise (pound 2 cloves of peeled garlic with a pinch of salt until a paste is formed. Stir into half a cup of mayonnaise and add 2 Tbsp sour cream and a generous sprinkling of black pepper), mashed green peas (frozen peas simmered for a minute or two, drained and lightly mashed to a rough paste, and chips.

For freshwater fishing you will need to buy a license which covers allows you to fish in all areas of New zealand except the Taupo area and some back country rivers.
You don’t need any license to fish in Saltwater.
