Peanut and Almond Crusted Cod

Cod….Cod….Cod….Cod is the hero of this dish. I enjoy eating all types of seafood, but I really enjoy cod. ┬áCod has a lean and mild flavor. I use cod fillets so it is easy to cook and does not take a long time to prep. I have done this now plenty of times, the original recipe is by Gordon Ramsay, but this is my twist on it. ┬áThis is a peanut and almond crusted cod with great northern beans. You can use any beans, or anything you wish to accompany the fish.

This recipe is VERY simple, and once you try it you will want more and more of it.
