- Whisk flour and water together in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Crumble in the bouillon cube and add the milk, thyme, and orange juice. Continue to whisk until boiling.

Side Suggestions: Mashed Potatoes
Wash and scrub 2 Yukon Gold potatoes. Place in a pot and cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until soft. Leave potatoes sitting in the pot with a cover on, but drain out the water, until ready to cook the cod (this will help preserve their heat). Add 2 tablespoons reduced fat milk and 2 teaspoons butter to the potatoes and beat mixture with an electric whisk until creamy. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
