Cod with Mango Avocado Slaw

Skip to the recipe

Food that looks this beautiful awakens the appetite. The slaw is a perfect accompaniment to meaty but mild cod, as it offers irresistible crunch, with sweet mango and creamy avocado, all in a spicy citrus dressing to arouse your taste buds. These ingredients are best when freshly combined so they retain their individual flavors and textures. For a real indulgence, try this recipe with halibut.

  4. Serve cod warm on individual plates with slaw on the side.
