Quebec inspired Breaded Cod with Seaweed Relish Dip recipe

Breaded Cod with Seaweed Relish Dip

Chef’s Note: I enjoy discovering new ingredients for my recipes and trying them out. This recipe combines two ingredients I came across from Quebec’s Maritime region. One is a Kelp-based Seaweed Relish called “Salaweg” from the Gaspésie region and the second is an alcoholic Maple Sap called “Val Ambré 8-Golden Acer,” both from the province of Quebec. There is a difference between Maple Sap (white in colour and water like) and Maple Syrup (is made from Maple Sap and is a sweet syrup). The Salaweg Relish is only available in Gaspé and the Lower St. Lawrence region or online; the Val Ambré 8 Golden Acer Maple Sap is available in Ontario and Quebec, check the internet for locations. This Breaded Cod with Seaweed Relish Dip recipe is a delicious treat… Enjoy!

  • Place in a preheated oven at 400ºF/205ºC for 15 to 25 minutes until cooked

Remove sweet potatoes out of the oven when done, place them onto a paper towel to drain off the excess olive oil, and set aside.

Directions for the Cod Fillet:

  • In a bowl, mix one eggs with 2 to 3 tablespoons of maple sap and set aside

  • Take the fillet and dip it into the egg mixture, make sure the fillet is fully coated with the egg mixture
  • Take your coated fillet and roll it into the breadcrumbs make sure that the bread crumbs cover the whole fillet and set aside

(Note: Let the fillet sit for a few minutes before placing the fish into the oil to cook. Letting the coated fillet sit for a few minutes will allow the breadcrumbs to better stick to the fillet).

 In a deep frying pan add your oil and heat it to 350ºF/175ºC 
• Gently place the Cod fillet into the hot oil. Cook until golden brown. Once cooked place the fillet on to a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
