Cod au Gratin 150 Author: Canadian Living Credits: Cod au Gratin 150

This dish is a classic Newfoundland dish but I have adapted it to make it lower in calories and fat by using 1% milk and low fat cheese as well as whole wheat bread crumbs. This dish can be served as an appetizer or as a main dish. Serve appetizers in individual ramekins.

  • Portion size 6 servings
  • Credits : corboland


  • 2 lbs cod fillets
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 cup marble cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup water


In 9 x 13" glass dish, place cod fillets, minced onion, salt, pepper and water. Cook in microwave approximately 10 to 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, make white sauce: Place butter and flour in small saucepan. Whisk together over medium heat. Add milk slowly, stirring until mixture thickens.

Pour water off fish, add white sauce and cover with bread crumbs and grated cheese. Bake in preheated 350ºC oven until cheese is melted and golden brown.
