Broiled Wild Cod Fish Tacos
Before turning the oven to the Broil mode arrange the oven racks so one rack is close to the top heating element but not too close to avoid burning the food.
For easy clean-up line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, shiny side down and be sure to have the sauce and other ingredients ready for quick assembly once the fish is cooked. The tortillas can be steamed in a Combi steam oven or heated on the cooktop.
1 ½ lbs wild Alaskan cod fillets or other firm fish
2 tsp Old Bay seasoning or chili powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juice only
1-2 tbsp Chilis in Adobo sauce
1 package prepared coleslaw
Thinly sliced radish
The oven will heat quickly in the Convection Broil mode and the fish will cook in approximately 5 minutes, so begin by mixing the sauce ingredients, assembling the filling, and preparing the optional garnishes. I find the smoky flavor of chilis in Adobo sauce compliments fish tacos really well but you may prefer another type of hot sauce.
Heat the oven in the Convection Broil mode at 450℉ degrees.
Place the fish on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil, shiny side down. Season with your preferred topping and drizzle a little oil over each fillet. Place in the oven and cook for 3 -4 minutes until the fish is seared and flaking naturally.
Remember, it’s important to keep the oven door closed when broiling.
Place a heaping tablespoon of sauce on a warmed tortilla, top with the coleslaw and some broiled fish.

Baked Ham with Tangerine Glaze and Roasted Carrots
Since ham is already cooked by smoking it is most often eaten cold, however heated through and brushed with a fruity glaze it makes a great centerpiece for celebration meals.
In order to heat the ham through it usually needs a fair bit of time in a slow oven and to avoid drying out the meat it is covered until the final stage when the glaze is added. However, if you bake your unsliced ham in Convection you will not need to cover the ham and the heating through time will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours, depending on the weight of the ham. If you are heating a sliced ham then it must remain covered in foil to avoid drying out.
1 - smoked ham, bone-in, skin on 7 - 9 lbs
1 - bunch fresh sage leaves
¾ - cup olive oil
1 - cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 - cups tangerine juice
2 - tangerines, sliced thin, seeds removed
2 - cups, packed light brown sugar
1 - cup water
½ - teaspoon whole cloves
2 - cinnamon sticks
1 ½ - lbs baby carrots
Preheat the oven in the Convection Mode 300 degrees.
Place the ham on a rack in a large roasting pan.
Score the ham with cuts in a diamond pattern about 2 inches apart and ½ deep.
Season generously with salt and pepper. Chop 8 of the sage leaves and mix with the olive oil to make a paste, rub all of the ham getting into the slits.
Bake for 2 hours.
Combine the butter, tangerine juice, tangerines, brown sugar, water and spices in a heavy medium saucepan and heat over medium heat.
Bring to a gentle boil and simmer until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze, 30 - 40 minutes.
Brush the glaze over the ham when it has completed its initial heating phase. Add the baby carrots and another 8 chopped sage leaves and continue baking for another 40 - 50 minutes until the carrots are tender and the internal temperature of the ham is 150 degrees.
