Alaska Cod, Tomatoes, Red Peppers and Olives. Oh, yeah!



Alaska Cod with Tomatoes, Red Peppers and Olives

Simple, fast, delicious and light. It’s just what I need. I’ve just come out of a chaotic weekend full of business seminaries where I’ve eaten dozens of pastry dishes and drank gallons of coffee and I have to say my stomach feels like a heavy ball of metal. I don’t like that.

So, this dish is my solution to the problem. It has everything I need to get me back on track. Fresh veggies and light white fish. Now, if you feel this dish is a little too light for your taste you can add some canned beans. They go nicely with the flavors in this mix and it diversifies the textures.

I say try both dishes and settle on the one you like best. Bon appetit guys and have a great day!

    • Hey Jenny, you should preheat your oven at 220 C / 428 F. Thanks for the comment, this info slipped my mind somehow.

  1. We enjoyed this. Thanks! I decided that it needed garlic and white wine (don’t most things we cook?) so I sauteed the onions, added the garlic and red pepper to sauté a bit longer, then deglazed the pan with some white wine before adding the tomatoes. I also threw in some oregano in addition to the parsley. As you say, simply yum!

    • I’m really glad you like it! Also, your twist sounds very delicious and I’ll definitely try it as soon as I can.

  2. I added capers. Also, I didn’t see your comment about the temperature until after i cooked it. I baked it at 325 degrees but for a bit longer. Next time will add garlic and wine as suggested by LE.
