Alaskan Cod with Mediterranean Sauce

Alaskan Cod with Mediterranean Sauce

This delicate white fish pairs beautifully with the flavors of the Mediterranean. Tilapia or Pollock work nicely too, in place of cod.

Alaskan Cod with Mediterranean Sauce

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

3 medium cloves of Garlic, chopped

1/2 cup Dry White Wine

1 1/2 cups Grape Tomatoes, halved (quartered if large)

1 cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth

1/2 cup Kalamata Olives, rinsed, pitted, halved

1 tablespoon fresh Thyme, chopped

4 Alaska Cod fillets, about 4 ounces each

Salt Substitute, to taste

Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste

Pine Nuts, toasted, optional for garnish

Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and let simmer until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.

2. Add the tomatoes, broth, and olives and thyme. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 8 minutes.

3. Season the fish with salt substitute and pepper. Nestle the fish into the sauce, return to a simmer, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Cook until the fish is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

4. Transfer the fish to 4 shallow bowls. Spoon the sauce over the fish and garnish with optional nuts and serve.
