Seared Cod with Grapefruit Slaw

I was really happy when I saw some cod on sale at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago. I had seen this quick dinner in Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine and wanted to give it a try. In actuality, I always make a trip past the seafood area in my grocery store to see which types of fish are on sale- fresh or frozen. Then I can stock up or plan a fresh dinner with fish or some other type of seafood.

Slaw is something that pairs really well with fish and this particular slaw has fresh grapefruit in it, which is perfect this time of year since citrus is ripe and yummy right now.

I should let you know that usually I am not a fan of mayo-based slaws. That is why I really liked this one, because it was simply dressed with a little oil and lemon juice.

This was a quick and easy dinner that we really loved. The best part was how the cod cooked up golden brown and crisp on the outside. It was so delicious!

* I used less oil than called for in the slaw and omitted the red onion

I'm so intrigued by the grapefruit slaw! I might need to pick one up and give this a shot.

What a refreshing and interesting recipe! I loved the grapefruit for its color and juiciness in the slaw. I can never get fish crispy (even in a cast iron skillet), but it was still tasty with lots of contrasts and flavors.
