WHY are there so many choices out there about fish? Salmon used to be healthy for you, then only wild-caught salmon was okay, and now farm-raised salmon is back, because it is sustainable. How about we just pick a fish we enjoy, cook it with love, and sit down to a great meal?
Cod. It’s a simple white fish, easy to prepare, and delicious. This meal, above, took 10 minutes to prepare. I purchase my fish either at the fish market or at Whole Foods. Fresh fish is best, but the dish above is made from Whole Foods frozen cod, 6 pieces to a package. We thaw it in the refrigerator during the day. Fast forward to 6pm, staring at the fish, and wondering what to do to create a meal…
Oven baked is easiest. We used two huge handfuls of cherry tomatoes, halved, and fresh garlic. Place the fish in a dry cast iron baking dish. Top with tomatoes, two cloves of garlic, roughly chopped, and 1 tsp olive oil. That’s it!
A separate cast iron dish held asparagus with 1 tsp sesame oil drizzled on top. Baked both dishes for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees‚ and dinner was on the table! Fantastic! We come back to this one over and over again! Colorful, healthy, non-fat, no-salt, low-carb, easy, fast, and delicious!
