chef's tip

When removing the pin bones of the black cod, use a knife and cut along each side of them to remove. Black cod pin bones cannot be removed with traditional tweezers.



This recipe was created for Club House for Chefs by: Paul Moran, Executive Chef of 1909 Kitchen in Tofino.

For the Yukon Gold Potatoes: Using a cheese grater, grate the Yukon Gold Potatoes. Add grated potatoes to a bowl and season with salt. Let sit for 20 minutes and squeeze out any excess liquid. Using a 2” ring mold, make 12 1 cm thick disks using the squeezed potato. Place molds on a parchment-lined sheet pan and store in the fridge. Fry potatoes in oil for 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil.

For the Horseradish Mayo: Mix together organic mayonnaise, horseradish, juice of half a lemon and pepper. Place in the fridge and reserve for serving.

For the Smoked Black Cod Fish and Chips: Remove pin bones and skin from the black cod fillets. Portion fillets into approximately 28 g square pieces. Toss the black cod in La Grille Smoky Cedar Seasoning. Preheat pot to 350°F and add grapeseed oil. Place black cod into an oven or wood fired grill at 500°F for 4-6 minutes.

For Serving: Place cooked potato discs on a plate. Top with horseradish mayo and black cod. Garnish with fresh herbs and a lemon wedge.
