Wednesday, January 28, 2015 – Cod with polenta and collard greens

Today is a special day. In addition to being on vacation in Utah, it is also our son’s birthday. We celebrate his day by taking a trip to Zion National Park and making a special dinner. Unfortunately he is not here with us but is celebrating with his wife and kids at home.

First a little beauty of the surrounding area –

We decide to treat ourselves to a pretty fancy dinner. After all we were responsible for Jon having his birthday today and I worked damn hard bringing him into the world. Our dinner is baked cod with a parsley sauce, soft polenta, and collard greens with corn and garlic.

While I am making the parsley sauce (parsley, water, lemon juice and olive oil), John marinates the cod in lemon zest, bay leaves, rosemary, paprika, and a little cayenne pepper
