I love serving chanterelles with fish! It’s such an underestimated combination that should get more into the spotlight. Topping it all with fresh lingonberries and you have yourself a wonderful fall dinner. Usually when serving chanterelles (at least to my knowledge and experience) you serve it with a pieces of steak or add some cheese to it. But a good pieces of cod and chanterelles together with fresh lingon berries might be one of the most delicious combinations I have ever tasted. The tender and soft fish, together with the fried chanterelles and the little sour lingonberries makes the most wonderful combination. I love to serve it on a light yet flavorful cauliflower purée that adds smoothness to the dish. Chanterelles might not be the most flavorful mushrooms on their own. But by frying them with shallots, salt and pepper they get so tasty and make the perfect addition to the gentle and tender fish. This dish is perfect to serve for a quick and easy weekend meal or a cozy weekend dinner. This dish is both gluten, grain free and low carb.
A few tips:
- Use good quality cod fillet. The fish together with the chanterelles are the main stars of this dish. Therefor you want to use a good quality piece of fish and not the cheaper once.
- A cod fillet can easily become dry and boring if baked for too long or on too high heat. I like to bake my cod on lower temperature to make sure it ends up baked, juicy, but still has a little chewing resistance. It is better to take the fish out of the oven and then let it rest covered in aluminum foil for a few minutes to get “done” instead of making it to dry.
- I served this dish with cauliflower purée but you can also make it with regular potato purée or mash.
