I’m not a fish eater. The closest I get to eating fish is severely battered halibut so I was a little apprehensive to taste this dish but my pleasure on-screen is not enhanced! This recipe, and more importantly, the Wild Cod was amazing! I highly recommend this dish!


Mederterannean Wild Cod


Makes 2 servings

  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) chopped fresh parsley
  • Half clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tsp (20 ml) PC New World EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 1 pkg (280 g) PC Blue Menu Wild Pacific Cod, thawed
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper
  1. In bowl, stir together tomatoes, basil, red onion, parsley and garlic. Stir in half of olive oil, red wine vinegar and pinch of the salt. Set aside.
  2. Pat fish dry; drizzle both sides with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and remaining salt. Heat large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat; cook fish for 5 minutes, turning once, or until golden and flakes easily when prodded with a fork.
  3. Place one fillet on each of two plates; spoon tomato mixture on top. Serve with your favourite whole grain, such as quinoa or brown rice, if desired.
