Broiled and Crusted Codfish

Broiled and Crusted Codfish

Serves: 4–6 • Time: 20 minutes

This codfish recipe, made with fresh cod and the codfish seasoning from the Portugal Box, is not only an impressive centerpiece to your dinner table, but also packed with flavor and easy to make. It’s a filling enough main to serve on its own, but could also work well with rice or boiled potatoes if more people are at the table.
