Honey Garlic Glazed Cod | Ridicously GOOD 20 Minute Recipe
This Honey Garlic Glazed Cod, known as Bacalao a la Miel, is the perfect dish for the holidays or any time of the year. As it has a beautiful presentation and is super easy to make. Serve it next to some roasted potatoes and a crunchy baguette to mop up all that goodness.
To make this recipe, I used cod fillets I bought frozen and thawed out. But you can always use the fresh stuff here, as well as any other type of firm white fish. For the sauce, I used homemade vegetable broth, but chicken broth or fish broth are great substitutes.
What gives this dish that sweet & savory flavor is the combination of raisins and honey. If raisins are not your thing, you can also use dried cranberries. As for the honey, agave syrup can easily substitute it.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When you first fry the cod, you don´t want to fully cook it through. Just a light fry to give it a crust. Once you add the cod to the sauce, you simmer it until it´s fully cooked through and glazed in all that goodness.
