A few months ago, I thought it would be fun to make hazelnut milk. Yes, fun to make, fun to sip, but the concoction was so rich that sipping was all we could do….that is….until we discovered that adding a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream to it made it fantastically addictive.
We haven’t made hazelnut milk since – but with a giant bag of happy round hazelnuts still in my refrigerator (hey, is is weird that I keep nuts in the refrigerator?) I came up with several recipes to use them up.
Even though this dish looks fancy, even restaurant-worthy, the elements of this dish are relatively simple. Well, it has to be, in my opinion – nutty and luxurious-tasting hazelnut browned butter shouldn’t have to compete with anything too complicated on the plate.
The cherry tomatoes are from the garden, I can’t pick them fast enough – I’ll finish picking one side of the plant, turn around and zoinks!! another 10 have ripened just like that.
Since I’m the only one in the house who eats tomatoes (!#!$@!#) I’ve resorted to sharing the lot with the hens, chucking a handful every day into their coop.
pssst…..Hey, has anyone tried hypnosis to get your kids and husband to like a certain food?
Throw those babies into the pan with the fish, they’ll burst open (sometimes I’ll even use my spatula to squish ’em a bit in the pan to release the juices).
Cod Fish with Hazelnut Browned Butter Recipe
- 4 5oz cod fillet
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon dried sage
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- Season the cod fillet on both sides with the salt, pepper and dried sage. Set aside.
- Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add just 1 tablespoon of the butter. When the butter is bubbling and starting to get light brown, add the the chopped hazelnuts. Toast the hazelnuts in the butter, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Remove the hazelnuts and let cool on paper towel. Keep the pan on the stove.
- Add the remaining butter to the hot pan and add the cod. Cook for 2 minutes on one side, then flip the cod fillet. Turn the heat to medium-low. Add in the cherry tomatoes to the pan with the cod.
- Cover loosely with a sheet of tin foil and let cook for an additional 2-4 minutes, gently shaking the pan every so often to turn the tomatoes. [fillet 1" thick = 2 minutes; fillet 2" thick = 4 minutes]
- Serve the cod and tomatoes with chopped hazelnuts - make sure you drizzle a bit of the browned butter on each dish.

Incredible post! It is generally essential to show your first and last name to construct your own image and put a face to the business or blog you own.
Delicious! Best Recipe. Hello there to every single one, it’s in all honesty a great
for me to go to see this site, it includes significant Information.
You can increase the likelihood that you achieve your fitness goals if you plan out and stick to a daily routine. By doing the same things at the same times, you will fall into a pattern that is more difficult to break than it is to keep. By doing this your fitness routine will become second nature.
The benefits of practicing proper nutrition are varied and plentiful. Hopefully you learned something from this article that can improve your nutrition, and you’ll put it into play today! Try eating good, healthy food and see if it doesn’t change the way to feel and think every day! Good luck!
Eating healthy and consuming nutritious foods vary from person to person, but it is important that everyone understands the proper role good nutrition plays in their diet. Below, you will find a great article that has plenty of tips about nutrition so you can figure out what works best for your lifestyle.
When considering a diet that provides an adequate nutrition level, be sure to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. This will ensure that you keep your risk level low for low blood pressure, as well as, some cancers. Different types of fruits and vegetables contain different nutrients and this is why it is best to spread your choices among them. Generally, darker leafy vegetables, such as spinach or any that are deep and bright in color, such as peppers, have a high nutritional content.
When considering a diet that provides an adequate nutrition level, be sure that you are shaking your soy milk before drinking it. This important because all of the calcium and nutrients tend to fall to the bottom of the container and may never be consumed fully. Either way, regular cow milk is a much better way to obtain your calcium intake.
Set smalls goals when trying to increase your fitness level. For example, if you want to lose 50 pounds you should make your initial goal to lose 5% of your weight. Meeting that goal will boost your confidence and resolve. If you would like to run a 5k spend some time improving your mile time and then go on to longer distances.
If you are a runner and would like to build endurance and speed, train like Kenyan runners. The first third of your run go slowly. The middle third start running at your normal pace. At the end run faster than normal. Each week slowly increase your starting pace, and this will help to increase your normal and fast pace, too.
Don’t think of exercise as a workout or exercise. Using those words can make you become less motivated. You can also reference each exercise by its actual name to help you stay motivated throughout your workout.
For someone new to the idea of getting in shape, fitness does not have to mean buying the most expensive shoes and training for a marathon. For those with little athletic ambition, a good start would be taking the stairs up to the office instead of the elevator and walking to a work-mate’s office to relay a message instead of sending an in-office email.
Our family made this last night, paired with mashed cauliflower potatoes. PERFECT!
Delicious!!!!! I love this recipe. I made a few changes. Instead of macadamia nuts I used California Walnuts and rather than cherry tomatoes, a medium kumato tomato sliced into quarters. So very tasty and easy!
Looks so yummy… was going to make stream cod tonight. Nope, making this one instead.
In two batches, combine the sifted flours and coloured buttermilk, with the butter and eggs mixture.
This is fabulous Jaden. I want to try this one out. I am not a fan of tomatoes but hubs is. Wish we lived closer, he’d be begging at your door for them.
you are so lucky to have a glut of tomatoes! if you can’t eat them fast enough, my favorite ways to preserve tomatoes are: oven-dried tomatoes (slice in half, drizzle with olive oil and S&P, bake at 200 for a few hours), tomato sauce, and tomato jam
I’m so terribly sorry to hear that Scott’s dad passed away. I’m sending my heartfelt condolences to you and your family, Jaden.
My family loves cod, and I have been enjoying brown butter in many baked goods lately but haven’t tried it in a savory dish. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
Oh- and regarding how to get your family to eat a food that they don’t like? I just keep on making it/adding it in. At some point they will eat it! Just last night, my son, who normally picks the cucumbers out of his salad ate them. He did say (as he was eating them) that cucumbers aren’t his favorite vegetable…but he ate every single cucumber on his salad! 🙂
I think browned butter just makes everything more delicious. I have never made cod before but I do love a good hearty white fish!
I love this dish…cod is one of my favorite fish and the hazelnut is a great idea. For those of you wanting to cut back on fat…don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of butter but about a year ago I started with maple syrup in place of butter. I know what your thinking but trust me on this and give it a try. With fish its amazing as it forms this nice crust that brings just a touch of sweetness. In this dish I would use about 1 -2 tablespoons instead of the butter and bingo you have a much healthier dish! I use organic maple syrup as I find it tastes better and again its healthier. Its tougher to find but worth it. The one I use is called Rouge pure organic maple syrup that I get online.
Make sure the cod is not Atlantic Cod which was declared endangered by the World Wildlife Fund in 2000.
This is an interesting combination. I have never had hazelnut with fish.. Looks super yummy!
Have you tried slow roasted tomatoes on pizza? Or with pasta, black olives and mozzarella?
Big high fives for making your own hazelnut milk! Definitely sounds like quite the undertaking. I’ve never made nut milk before but if it turns out as rich as you’ve said, I think it’s definitely worth the effort! And adding Bailey’s to it…by golly, that’s genius! Your cod looks amazing and what a wonderful idea incorporating in the hazelnut milk! And with those cherry tomatoes….yup, definitely restaurant worthy!
So sorry to hear this news about Scott’s dad. A tough time. Please accept my condolences and give Scott a big hug from me.
I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. This recipe looks delicious and might be a way to get my son to give tomatoes another try…
This sounds light and delicious just how I enjoy cooking.
I’m very sorry for the loss of Scott’s Dad. It is indeed very hard on the widow/widower. My parents were married almost 50 years when my Mom died; Dad still misses her immensely even tho it’s been almost 8 years. It’s amazing when marriages last that long. Well, I’m glad you’re coping with good, easy food ’cause this looks great! Think I just found tomorrow night’s dinner 🙂
This sounds awesome Jaden! I’m totally trying this. Yum!
My fiance would LOVE this!
