    This recipe pairs smashed potatoes with slated cod, milk, garlic, and herbs for a big, gluten-free suppertime hit.

    • 4 cod fillets, 4-6 ounces each
    • 1½ cups whole milk
    • 2 shallots, sliced
    • 1½ teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 pound red baby potatoes
    • 2 tablespoons salted butter
    • ¼ cup chives
    • 1 ounce arugula
    • pinch of salt
    • pinch of cracked black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

    Tomato and thyme vinaigrette:

    • 5 ounces plum tomatoes
    • ½ teaspoon thyme
    • 1½ cups tomato juice
    • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
    • 2 pinches of salt
    • 1 pinch of cracked black pepper

    For the vinaigrette, add all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. 

    Strain, and season to taste, and put aside.

    Rub the cod fillets with salt and set aside for 25 minutes. 

    Place the potatoes in a pot, bring to a simmer and cook until tender. 

    When potatoes are done, drain away the water, and place potatoes in a bowl. 

    While still warm, crush the potatoes in the bowl, add the melted butter, salt, and the chopped chives.

    Run cod under cold water to rinse all the salt off. 

    Place cod in a large saucepan with the cold milk, thyme, crushed garlic, sliced shallots and bay leaves.

    Bring to a simmer, cook for four minutes, remove and place on plate for serving.

    Place the potato just off the middle of the plate, place the cod on top and spoon over the dressing. 

    Dress the rocket with the olive oil, salt and pepper, and add place beside the cod.

    English-style fish and chips are one of my all-time favorites. One of the dishes I've missed the most ever since going gluten-free. I've been discovering new uses for Rice Chex as a gluten-free breading, and this recipe for gluten-free fish and chips is one of the results. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    Fish tacos have gained a large and growing following over the last few decades. You can find them featured at numerous taquerias and Mexican restaurants. Too often, though, they are coated in batter and so off limits to people with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity.

    Celiac.com 03/01/2016 - If you're looking for an easy, tasty way to serve fish is a great way to go.
    Now, for this dish, you're not looking for the black cod known as Chilean Sea Bass, but for the American version, usually caught in Alaska, that is much more sustainable. So, be sure to talk to your fishmonger if you're not sure.
