This recipe is full of nutrients, and is really quite easy and versatile. I make it with whatever veggies I have around or sound good. My favorite fish to use is Black Cod, also called Sablefish, which is a nice source of Omega 3 fatty acids, but you could use any fish, really. I have used: Halibut, Petrale Sole, and Salmon. Feel free to get creative!
1 lb Black Cod
2 - 4 cups of Veggies, like: Spinach, Kale or Chard, Zucchini, Mushrooms, Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Bell Peppers (all sliced and prepped)
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Other Options: Turmeric, Pesto, and/or other Herbs, Spices
In a covered sauté pan, add enough filtered water to cover the bottom and a little bit up the side of the pan.
Cover the pan and place over medium heat for 1 - 2 minutes.
Once water is heated a bit, add fish, salt and pepper, cover and cook (it's basically steaming) for 3 - 5 minutes.
Add vegetables (for this recipe, I used zucchini, red bell pepper, kale), cover, and cook (on medium/low) until fish is cooked through and vegetables have softened to your liking. For black cod, this takes around 5 minutes.*
Enjoy as is, or with a little pesto (as I did in this version), over rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa. Oh, and don't shy away from the broth, it has some nice nutrients from the fish too!
*Cooking time of fish will vary depending on the type of fish you use. Black cod is so fatty that it is very forgiving and it doesn't take too long. Petrale Sole cooks a little faster and I have had salmon and halibut take a little longer.
