I’m a meat eater, beef and pork, with occasional chicken. Not much on fish but am examining dietary choices with a goal of weight loss and health improvement.
Tonight I will be cooking cod, which I haven’t eaten in ages.
We, no matter our age, are influenced by our childhood diet. My mother dearly loved salted cod which she bought in wooden boxes. Surprisingly, to me, you can still buy it that way. I was not a fan. Being a sheep rancher’s daughter, she was big on boiled mutton. I’ll eat it to be polite but mutton and lamb don’t make it over my threshold.
My mother loathed fowl and wouldn’t eat any, period! On occasions she would prepare it for the rest of the family.
For a large portion of my youth, we were poachers and mainly ate venison, elk, trout, and the occasional rabbit. My father and I refused to eat liver. In spite, my sister eats liver and onions.
Thanks to the internet, recipes are easy to find. The one I will try is a lemon/parsley seasoned baked cod.
A final note. If the package doesn’t say wild caught, I won’t buy it. I’m deeply suspicious of farmed fish.
