This Cod Au Gratin with Corn is a filling a satisfying meal that really highlights cod fish so well. 

Have you ever tried Cod Au Gratin? It is a fish dish that originates from Newfoundland. Well I have made that recipe before and shared it on this site.

And today, I’m sharing another take on this dish. It basically it is the same recipe as my Newfoundland Cod Au Gratin. However with the addition of corn! 

Cod Au Gratin with Corn

The first time I made “Cod au Gratin” was last week. Believe it or not! And I loved it! I served it alongside a salad. And thought to myself, wow corn would be really good in this.

So I create this the very next day! We basically have been eating “Cod Au Gratin” for the past few days. And no one is complaining! It is delicious and filling. 

If you’re looking for a excellent recipe that utilizes fresh or frozen cod fish, then you have just found it!

It is finished off in the oven or under the broiler till it gets perfectly browned.

WHAT IS COD AU GRATIN? 

Cod Au Gratin is a dish that is topped with a white sauce, then cheese and or bread crumbs. 

It also is a dish that originates from the maritime provinces in Canada, Newfoundland to be exact. It is a dish consisting of fresh cod, flour, bread crumbs, lemon juice, cheese, and other seasonings and spices.

Some people use breadcrumbs and onions, while others don’t. For this dish we used onion powder, panko bread crumbs and a little dijon mustard. It is all about personal preference when it comes to making this or any dish.

We ask our Direction of Operation what he thought, about the dishes original origins. He stated that it is a well known fact that Newfoundland has a deep connection to it’s Irish and English heritage.

However he thinks that the dish was introduced by the French. What do you think?

If anyone knows indefinitely, we would love to hear about it! 

CAN I USE FROZEN COD FOR COD A GRATIN?

Yes, and that is what I used. Just be sure to defrost it and pat it dry prior to using. I find the best way to defrost fish is in a warm bath of water. Not hot and not cold, luke warm is perfect.

After doing some more research on it, I learned their are slightly different ways to make it. And so I used what skills I have in the kitchen and made my own variation. 

I hope you give it a try, because it is absolutely amazing!

CAN COD AU GRATIN BE FROZEN?

Yes, that is if you are using fresh cod to begin with. You will want to purchase the freshest cod possible, then you will make the dish exactly as stated.

However before freezing it, be sure to allow the roux to cool down completely before pouring over the fish and do not bake it. Safe that for the day you want to eat it. Remove from the freezer and simply bake at 350 for 45 minutes till done!
