Creamy Cod over Sautéed Greens

creamy cod

Cod is a delicious fish with a wonderful texture that lends itself well to a variety of cooking methods.  This recipe is deceivingly simple yet delivers a gourmet French flavor that will transport you to your favorite sidewalk café.  I use heavy cream but for a non-dairy version you can easily replace the cream with coconut cream that will be equality enticing.
