Lingcod & Potatoes (sponsored post)

I received another box of beautiful Alaskan fish from Sitka Salmon Shares this week.  

In this box was "lingcod", something I was not familiar with.   
It's not cod and it's not ling fish, so what is it?   

It is a Pacific coast white fish that is very popular in fish tacos and everywhere in the Pacific Northwest......I am happy to make its acquaintance.  

It is much like halibut in texture and cod in flavor.   

The box comes with recipes along with the beautiful catch.    This recipe for pesto cod and potatoes is a winner, and it couldn't be easier.

Let's call it Fish 'n Chips:

1.5 lb. piece of Alaskan lingcod (you can also use cod or halibut)
1 lb. of baby gold potatoes, cut in half
1 tbsp. pesto (basil, walnuts, garlic, cheese, olive oil, or just use store bought)
1 lemon
olive oil and kosher salt

Coat the piece of fish with the pesto.  

Lay some parchment paper on a baking sheet and toss your potatoes with olive oil and kosher salt.   Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes at 400F.
After 20 minutes, turn the potatoes over and lay the piece of fish on top of the potatoes.    Continue to the cook the potatoes and fish for 15-20 more minutes. 

Remove from the oven and squeeze a lemon over the fish.

This was so good, and the Alaskan fish from Sitka is so much better than the supermarket fish that has been laying around.

All of the fish is traceable to the source, with the name of the boat, the fisherman and the date of the catch.   If you'd like to try it use the code "SnacksFish".
