Plus... this recipe is delicious! And easy!
This is another recipe I found on Allrecipes and actually, the only "alteration" I made to it is to serve it with whole wheat couscous (try Trader Joe's). Actually next time, to really pump up the cholesterol lowering, I'll try serving it with quinoa. Anyway, this recipe is so easy it's actually a bit ridiculous, especially for how fancy it looks on a plate.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup black olives, pitted and sliced
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (I never bother with)
1/2 cup dry white wine (fine to use cooking wine near the oils and vinegars at the store)
1 pound cod fillets
Optional: Spinach, to add a green veggie (just throw it in the pot as everything simmers, before you add the fish)
Optional: Pepper, or any Italian seasonings you like
(yup, there are only 4)
1. Begin preparing couscous as indicated on couscous directions.
2. In a large frying pan (or sauce pan or pot), heat oil over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic in the olive oil until softened to liking.
|Not sure why I photographed this step.|
4. Place fillets in sauce. Simmer about 5 more minutes, or until fish turns white.
