Roasted Cod with Olives from Real Simple
I was able to make the recipe almost identical to theirs, but for some reason, the store that I went to had no lemons. I had to use a lime instead. Also, they used mixed olives which gave their dish more color with the mixture of purple and green olives. I only had green. To add a little more color to my Pacific Cod, I topped it with some chopped orange bell pepper that I had lying around.
The last substitution that I made was chicken broth in place of the white wine. I read somewhere before that you can do that, so when I have a shortage of white wine, I sub chicken broth. I think this is the best way to cook and serve fish! When you plate the fish, spoon the sauce on top so that the fish absorbs some, and the rest is all around the fish so that you can dredge the fish in it when you pick it up with your fork. I hate dry fish, and the result here is moist, flavorful fish.
Thanks to Real Simple for this recipe! I will be making it often! You can find the original recipe for Real Simple's Roasted Pacific Cod here.
