A summer cod with salsa

Cod is a fish appreciated for its white and firm flesh, which can be cooked in many ways. Native to the cold waters of the North Atlantic, this fish is rich in protein and omega-3, making it a healthy and nutritious food. In Quebec, cod is often used in traditional dishes, such as cod with capers and cod à la provençale.

In this recipe, we offer you a tasty combination of cod and a fresh and colorful salsa. Salsa is a condiment of Mexican origin, usually made with tomatoes, onions, peppers and cilantro. Here we offer you an exotic and tangy variant, with the addition of peppers, mango and northern prawns. This salsa brings a touch of freshness and crunch that goes wonderfully with cod.
