  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation Directions

FILLING

  • HEAT oven to 450°F. Spray 4 or 5-inch ramekins with no-stick cooking spray.
  • HEAT shortening in a 2- to 3-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 7 minutes.
  • ADD flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in milk, salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 minutes (sauce will be thick.) Remove pan from heat. Season cod with salt and pepper; gently stir into sauce.

BISCUIT CRUST

  • WHISK together flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Blend in shortening cubes with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk and dill with a fork until mixture just comes together.
  • GATHER dough into a ball. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 2 or 3 times. Roll out with a floured rolling pin into an 8-inch square (1/2 inch thick). Cut out 4 biscuits using a 3 1/2-inch biscuit cutter.

ASSEMBLY

  • DIVIDE filling among ramekins. Top each with a biscuit; brush biscuits with melted shortening. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until sauce is bubbling and biscuits are golden, about 12 to 15 minutes.
