Alaskan Cod Alfredo
When I was asked to create a kid-friendly recipe for the Alaska Seafood Board, I got really excited. Seafood is so healthy and it is full of nutrition for kids growing bodies.
My kids eat seafood once a week and one of their favorite ways to enjoy it is with my easy gluten free alfredo sauce. I have tried several different types of sauce for cod, but alfredo seems to be their favorite! Cod and pasta are naturals together!
This recipe features my homemade alfredo sauce. This is a delicious cream sauce for fish!
It is the most kid-friendly, easy sauce for cod you will ever make. It is even ready in just minutes. This simple gluten free alfredo sauce makes everything great….at least that is what my kids say!
You can slather it on pasta, or enjoy it over this whole roasted cauliflower.
If your family is like mine, school nights are so busy it is hard to find time to share a nutritious family dinner. Family dinners are such an important meal.
This is the time to hear your children’s stories about their day and discuss interesting topics. When families rush because of sports and other activities, family communication can go downhill fast.

With everything you read these days about farm-raised and imported seafood, it is really nice to know you can enjoy seafood from Alaska without any worries.

- Alaska’s fishing methods are anchored in strict conservation practices as well as the State Constitution, ensuring that the delicious Alaska seafood you enjoy today will be enjoyed for generations to come.
Our local grocery store had both wild cod and salmon from Alaska.
I chose to use Alaskan cod in this recipe because it is a really kid-friendly fish. This fish is both flaky and mild, making it perfect for the pickiest of palates.
