The other day I made my Potato Chip Crusted Cod for dinner and realized, I’ve been making this dish for over 5 years. FIVE. I started off making it for Chris when he was my boyfriend….then he became my fiancé…..then my husband – all the while still eating it for occasional dinners. And now, I’m still making it for him AND our two kids. And I have no plans to stop. So, if that doesn’t make it a staple recipe for me, I don’t know what does!!
And since it’s such a staple dish for me, I was shocked when I realized I’ve never shared it here with you all! I’ve mentioned it from time to time on my Instagram stories but figured it was time to officially make it part of the Multiples & Miles recipe collection.
I’ll start by saying two things about this recipe: it’s SO easy and it’s SO delicious. And actually I’ll say a third: It’s VERY kid friendly. The last time I made it I ended up giving most of my portion to L&H because they ate theirs and begged for more. Lesson learned I’ll be doubling it from now on!
I’ve made it with both Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips as well as Plain Salted Chips – and personally I like the Plain Salted. But if you want to add a little kick to your fish, I encourage you to try the Salt & Vinegar. Served with an easy vegetable like sautéed green beans, carrots, or a quick side salad it’s a great weekday meal for the whole family. It’s worked for us for 5 years….and I have a feeling it will be around for many more!
