Cod with Garlic-Cashew Sauce

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

Inspired by The Art of Greek Cookery

This is a very easy recipe to make that works well with any side. Similar to the British tradition of fish and chips, battered and fried cod is mild-tasting and immensely comforting. The cashew sauce adds a modern twist to this old-fashioned way of preparing fish, giving it a vibrant, slightly spicy and very flavorful finish.
