If you find yourself wondering what to do with some cod fillets or few frozen squares of alaskan pollock, consider using this recipe to zhuzh up these blank canvases!

Apart from having to boil the potatoes, pretty much everything goes into the baking tray and can be served directly in it, making this a rather clutter-free recipe.

While I suggest a white, dense fish given that it serves great as a mellow vessel for the spices, you could use any fish of your preference, just keep in mind the amount of time in the oven not only varies depending on the size of the fish, but also the fat content.
