"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1. This recipe works well with any firm-fleshed white fish, including halibut.

2. If you have frozen cod fillets in your freezer, don't bother defrosting them prior to baking - you can absolutely bake fish fillets frozen and it's actually easier not to over-dry them when you bake them from frozen. Simply add 5-10 minutes to the cooking time.
