Recipe Notes

Just some notes:

  • Add more or less cheddar to individual tastes
  • season cod as desired before adding sauce. We don’t cook with salt, but do add pepper
  • We often cook a little longer because we don’t preheat.  Keep an eye out, cheddar on top should be golden brown, and sauce bubbling well.

Raised in outport Newfoundland in a town of 65 people, I pursued a post secondary diploma in Information Technology right out of High School. I’ve always been a geek at heart, but yet I love the rural life I grew up with. Fishing, hunting, camping and the great outdoors are still loves of mine, even if I don’t pursue them as often as I once did. Sports were always a big part of our lives, and I played many (badly) and loved them all.
