Cod with Zucchini and Tomatoes ~ Cabillaud Aux Courgettes
I just returned from Provence and still cannot get enough of those sunny flavor combinations: tomatoes, garlic, onions. When I’m in France and eating at a restaurant, I always order the fish of the day dish and I have NEVER been disappointed. The French know fish and they have fabulous fish recipes. Here is one that is not only fabulous, it is fail-proof and filled with all those southern French flavors! Et voila: Ingredients: 4 cod fillets 4 small zucchini 3 tomatoes 3 Tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, peeled flat leaf parsley salt and freshly ground pepper Preparation: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut a small x on the bottom of each tomato. Using a slotted spoon, dip the tomatoes into the boiling water, about 1 minute each. Remove, drain and rinse under cold water. Peel the tomatoes. Cut in half, gently squeeze out some of the seeds and then dice. Wash the zucchini and slice them into rounds. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or two. DO NOT let it brown. Add the zucchini, tomatoes and parsley. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the zucchini is cooking, prepare a steam basket. Place the fish in the basket and steam for about 12 minutes. To serve: Divide the zucchini/tomato mixture among 4 plates. Place a cod fillet on top. Season with salt and pepper and serve. Looking to end on a sweet note? Try zChocolat‘s exclusive selection of handmade French chocolates.
