Cod with rosemary potatoes

I think cod is one of the easiest fish to eat. It doesn’t have the strong fish smell and the bones are big and easily removed. And you can do pretty much everything you want with cod. I normally wrap it with some smoked bacon and bake it in the oven, but this time I wanted to try something else.
I put some olive oil on a piece of foil and put the fish on top. I seasoned it with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Then I added some slices of purple onion for some color and flavor.
I wrapped it into a nice package. To keep the heat inside I made sure I wrapped the fish in the shiny part of the foil. So if you ever wonder why foil has two different parts (shiny and non shiny) it’s just because one should be on the inside holding the heat.
One kind of potato I particular like is called Roseval. It is an oval shaped red/pink skinned potato. You can do pretty much everything with them. I chopped them in even pieces and boiled them for 5 minutes first. Then I mixed them with some olive oil, pepper, salt, some fresh garlic gloves, some fresh rosemary (out of my garden) and garlic powder and popped them in the oven on 160 degrees for 45 minutes. The last 30 minutes I added the fish packages.
I just love baked garlic gloves. They are soft and sweet and have a mild garlic flavor. Just delicious.
The cod came out very juicy and flakey. Unfortunately the onion has turn from deep purple to blue, which make it look less appealing. But the flavor was good. Next time I will not use the purple onion, but make a mix from tomatoes and bell peppers. That is something for another blog post.
