Fish! My very first fish recipe on this blog. I feel like there should be a ceremony or something. I haven’t done a fish recipe before because you kind of need to eat fish very soon after it is done cooking or it’s ruined, and I don’t cook just for this blog. I photograph what we are eating for dinner, so I definitely don’t want to ruin it by spending 20 minutes doing a photo shoot. However, I knew I had to make this One Skillet Cod Veracruz for you guys, so I got over my fears, timed it out, and made it happen!
I really love One Skillet Cod Veracruz for a few reasons. First, you cook everything in one skillet. I mean, it doesn’t get easier than that, right? Second, it has ingredients I hardly ever use in main dishes like black olives and roasted jalapenos. It feels a little bit exotic because it’s not something we normally eat. Third, fish. Enough said.
This dish screams for a good, crusty bread to sop up all the sauce. I served it over rice this time, but I definitely was missing the crusty bread. You could even do this over pasta. That would be yummy!
I ALWAYS buy wild caught fish, and I encourage you to do the same. Farm raised fish is so full of antibiotics and some truly disgusting things that it really shouldn’t even be considered a healthy option. I get these frozen wild caught cod filets at Trader Joe’s. They are very affordable, so you don’t even have to worry about the cost of wild vs. farm raised with this one!
I’ve left the best part of this for last. It only takes 30 minutes to make! Max! It would be especially fast if you prep all the ingredients the night before or morning of.
If I was having a busy week I would also plan for this One Pan Roasted Veggies & Sausage. It’s another no fuss meal that is ready in under an hour.
