Every once in a blue moon my husband will step into the kitchen and take over dinner duties.
I think he’d do it more often, but you know… work.
Last night I was lucky enough to be surprised with his specialty dinner of cod, corn and potatoes. Or as he calls them, “chips”. No, he’s not British.
This dish doesn’t have a video attached because I wasn’t expecting it, but I am sharing his recipe because it is DELICIOUS!!!! You can use other fish, but he’s always used cod for this dish.
Make this simple fish dinner on a weeknight in about 30 minutes. Let me know what you think about good ole Jed (Jeff’s) cooking skillz.

- Cut the potatoes into thin rounds. Cut off the corn from cob and set aside.
- In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the potatoes in a single, even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes on the first side, or until browned and flip and season with salt and pepper for another 5 minutes.

Add the seasoned fillets and cook 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, or until browned. Flip and add the vinegar, spooning the sauce over the fillets, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly coated and cooked through
