Potato-Crusted Cod & Wilted Arugula

Dredging and frying in potato flour is a great alternative to the gluten-full counterpart, white flour.

Once again, 4 o'clock rolled around and the farthest I had gotten in planning tonight’s meal was to take some cod out to thaw. Thankfully, I had some potatoes for mashing and arugula for wilting and a meal ended up coming together. This crisp, potato flour-crusted cod and the wilted arugula really hit the spot. Now, if I could just get serious about meal planning. Got any tips for me?
