From the Test Kitchen

We’re serving our zesty spiced cod with classic sides of mashed potatoes and slaw, elevated by a few simple twists. We’re mashing the potatoes with buttermilk for creamy texture and a hint of tanginess, and giving our slaw bright color and flavor by tossing in crisp sweet peppers and scallions.
