I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Crispy Cod

These pan fried fish fillets are so simple to make. And using cornstarch instead of flour, eggs and breadcrumbs for dredging makes all the difference. While flour absorbs oil, cornstarch blocks oil absorption leaving just a crisp and light coating on the fish. 

4 cod fillets (or haddock)
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil

Pat the fillets dry with paper towels. Mix the cornstarch with paprika, celery seed, salt and pepper, then dredge each fillet to coat both sides.

Heat about 1/4 - 1/2" of vegetable oil in a frying pan. When a small piece of bread is dropped in and it sizzles the oil is ready. Fry the fillets 1 minute per side, depending on thickness maybe a little longer, until browned. And that's it!

Serve with lemon wedges.
