Complementing fish with the sweet taste and incomparable crunch of nuts is a very old and almost universal tradition. Medieval Europeans learned the technique from the Arabs. When the Spaniards came in conquest of the Americas, they found the Aztecs already using seeds and nuts to thicken sauces for fish, shellfish, and poultry. Continue the tradition with this rich, yet light, cod and almond combination.
