  1. Ren, the subtle fragrance of the cod as the tartare warms with the fresh lemon squeezed on the crisp crust as my fork lifts the morsels in anticipation…will definitely prepare this for the weekend.

    Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. Living in the SE US in a rural area is culinary adventure as we do not have access to coastal convenience …recently an Earth Fare market opened in the area and I ordered the flash frozen cod from them. Again thank you for the inspiration…
