Poached Cod With Horseradish Mayo

Here’s another suggestion on how to put more tasty fish on your plate…

Last week I posted the recipe for the Smoked Salmon And Horseradish Salad I had during my Whole30.
This week’s recipe is another quick and easy dish that is compliant with the program…and with this poached cod recipe I’m sticking to fish and horseradish since it’s such a great combination!

Compliance Paleo, Primal, Whole30

Cod and horseradish…can’t go wrong!

What you need:

  • 1-2 cod fillets per person (room temperatured)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or clarified butter
  • A few good Pinches of sea salt
  • 1 Batch mayonnaise (unflavored)
  • grated horseradish (to taste)
  • 1 lemon

What to do:

1Fill a wide pot or deep frying pan so that it will just cover the fillets.
Add ghee, dill and salt, and bring to a gentle boil.
2Carefully place the cod fillets in the water and let them simmer until they have turned white on top.
(Note: If cooking many, rather cook them in batches than squeeze them all in at the same time.
3Mix the grated horseradish with the mayo to your preference (the more horseradish, the greater the kick…).
4Serve the poached cod with some fresh or roasted vegetables, the horseradish mayo on the side, and a lemon wedge to squeeze over the fish.


Healthy, simple and delicious!

  2. I recently discovered swai fillets. They are amazing an amazing, flaky, white fish. I have mine with creamy lemon dill sauce. So good. Thanks for the ideas! I’m fresh out.
