Yes yes…I know. I use the SAME ingredients over and over. Well that’s because these are my clean eating staples and I rather enjoy them. This just goes to show you…you can take a handful of ingredients and make TONS of recipes from them. NO boredom here!!
Since fish was previously prepared, this dish was done in about 20 minutes (and that was even as I was running back and forth to help my 4 yr old with the Wii) You could still probably make it in 30 minutes or less if you had to cook it simultaneously. The ingredients serve 2 average people or 1 really hungry person!!
- 8 oz Cod Fillets (if you use the SAMs Club Cod as shown here…it’s 4 indiv wrapped fillets)
- 3 tomatoes
- 2 large garlic cloves
- yellow onion
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 large basil leaves (optional) or use 1-2 teaspoon of dried basil according to your palate
- cracked pepper (optional)
Cook cod on stovetop. If you need directions, please see my Cod recipe from April.
Mince garlic and add to saucepan.
I used one round slice of onion and diced it. You can also use a green onion if you wish. Add to saucepan.
Chop tomatoes. I like to have tomato chunks in my stew, so I sliced and then quartered the slices.
Add 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar.
I added basil by ribbon cutting them. I also cracked pepper on top.
Stir and bring to a boil over medium/high heat. Cook until tomatoes have reduced down to a soup consistency.
Add your chopped up (previously cooked) Cod. Cook further over medium heat for a few minutes. You’re DONE!
***For lunch the very next day…I used the same stew base, but added shredded italian seasoned chicken! YUM!!***
