Creamy CodFish With Herbs

Cod is a popular food fish with a mild flavor, low fat content and a dense white flesh that flakes easily. Cod livers are processed to make cod liver oil, an important source of Vitamin A, Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids.It belongs to the same family as haddock and monkfish and is a deep sea fish hailing from the Artic waters...this dish is quite typical french way of preparing fishes...here at home everyone love to have this creamy sauce with any sort of fish n herbs along with long grain rice r else simply with pasta, this time i prepared this creamy sauce with cod fish...

5nos Codfish pieces
