  • Recipe


    1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
    1 tsp. salt
    16 oz. Cod fillets
    2 tbsp. vegetable oil
    2/3 cup apricot preserves
    1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
    4 tsp. fat free half-and-half
    2 tbsp. parsley (minced)
    4 oz. Shearer's Pretzel Minis


    1. Combine salad dressing and salt in a small bowl. Pulse pretzels in a food processor until pretzels are finely chopped, leaving some small pieces (should make about 1 cup). Place in shallow baking dish.
    2. Coat each side of the fish with salad dressing mixture, and cover with crushed pretzels. Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Sauté fish slowly, cooking 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown (internal temperature should reach 145°F). Keep fish warm.
    3. Whisk apricot preserves, Dijon mustard and half-and-half together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until sauce is creamy and thickens slightly. Pour sauce over fish, and garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
