Cod is a flaky white fish that is available fresh or frozen in most grocery stores. The frozen cod works great for this dish. Just thaw in the refrigerator overnight. You could also substitute any white flaky fish instead of cod. This dish goes well with Cilantro and Cashew Sauce or Kale and Napa Cabbage.
