Weekly Potato Recipe No. 5 from Kayotic Kitchen

Well I have got a delicious recipe here from 

 Kay,the cooking Dutch girl,(as she calls herself !), from Kayotic Kitchen 

To say it looks delicious is an understatement! 

So these are the ingredients you will need:

1 1/2 pound fresh cod
1 pound potatoes (little over)
1/2 a cup milk
1/3 vegetable bouillon cube
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
3 big spring-onions
3 tbsp butter
1/2 to 1 cup water
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tsp Dijon mustard
pepper and salt
As Kay says, 
This recipe is more like a mix & match of some of my favourite recipes. Here’s how it’s built up:
I like to steam fish. It’s one of the lightest and healthiest ways of cooking fish, but that’s not why it’s my preferred method: the fish holds its natural flavor when cooked like this. That’s a big plus to me.
The mash is an Irish recipe called Champ. Mashed potatoes with butter and scallions that are lightly boiled in milk so the milk takes on the flavor. Crazy simple but so tasty.
You could opt for Hollandaise or a light white sauce if you like. I’m going for a cream-based white sauce spiked with Dijon mustard. The mustard gives the sauce a wonderful edge.
This is pure comfort food. A robust meal that fills you up and warms your soul. What more could you ask for?

But the best thing about Kay's recipes is her photographs.  She explains every step of the recipe visually with her brilliant photos as you see below .

Cod, Champ and Mustard Sauce

Peel the potatoes and boil them in lightly salted water until tender. This will take roughly 25 minutes.

I suggest you visit Kays blog here to follow exactly how she makes this fantastic recipe.
And when you've had a go, let me know what you think!

Thank you so much Kay for allowing me to copy your recipe
 and share it here today.


  1. My dearest Jane, I sat here this morning with my coffee and went through a lot of your past posts. I don't know how I missed the photos of your banner and bunting. Your daughter did an incredible job on it. I really like the fabric she picked . . . it really sets off your Potato Theme. Your display table is wonderful and I'm sure that the large lettering helps bring in patrons. Tell her for me, that I think she is a sweetie. Have a great day, Connie :)

  2. You are right, Connie, she certainly is a sweetie and I will pass that message on:) The whole set up gave a more cohesive look and I got lots of positive comments which was great! Busy day so better run....bye for now Jane:)


I love to hear your comments and thank you for taking the time.
I really do appreciate it.
