Saffron Mashed Potatoes and Cod



This was an interesting way to prepare mashed potatoes – kind of fancy! It was good but I think I prefer good ol’ fashioned mashed potatoes, instead!


2 russet potatoes, peeled and quartered

1/4 c. whipping cream

1/4 t. crushed saffron

2 cod fillets


Boil the potatoes in some salted water until soft.

Drain the water. Add the whipping cream and saffron. Mash well and stir to blend all ingredients. Keep warm.

Heat a frying pan. Add some olive oil and heat. Season the cod. Place the cod in the hot oil and cook until golden. Turn over and cook until done.

Plate the mashed potatoes. Place the cod fillets over the potatoes.

Serve with a salad on the side.
