Weekday Meal Wednesday... Mediterranean Cod


I don't really have a name, recipe, or many words for this meal because this was a meal pulled together on a Monday night, but let's call it Mediterranean Cod.  I think the pictures speak for themselves, so I'll be brief.. The olives, capers, and lemon add a nice salty tang that adds flavor to the cod making this an easy, healthy, refreshing summer meal

  • olives (a handful)
  • cherry tomatoes, (a few handfuls) halved
  • 1 large onion, julienned
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • sprig of oregano, minced
  • cod fillets
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Salt and pepper the cod and drizzle with olive oil.  Let sit while you prep the rest of your ingredients. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.  Saute the cod fillets presentation side down first for approximately 3 minutes per side.  Remove from skillet and set aside. 
  3. In the same skillet you sauteed the cod in add the onions and saute over medium head until just turning translucent. 
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano, and garlic and saute for another minute or two. 
  5. Nestle the cod fillets among the sauteed veggies and turn heat to low.  Let reheat for several minutes before serving.
