Top Review by Adam H.

I must start this review by saying that I'm really not a fish lover at all, I want to vary my diet by adding fish, but I wanted a recipe full of other flavours so the fishy taste wasn't overpowering. This dish succeeded in so many ways. I followed the recipe to the letter even though I was sceptical of adding nectarines. It was superb and all done in less than 30 minutes. A household favourite from the first try.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Rub cod with oil.
  3. Place cod in a oven proof dish in one layer.
  4. Mix the spices and dust the cod.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cod flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  6. Or until until the fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  7. Meanwhile prepare nectarine.
  8. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat saute onions, peppers and garlic for 5 minutes.
  9. Add the nectarines and saute them until they their juices reduce and begin to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle the sugar over them and saute until the juices further thicken and the sugar caramelizes slightly, about 1 minute.
  10. Add the balsamic vinegar and saute until the juices thicken. Toss in fresh herbs of choice.
  11. Plate fish and top with caramelized nectarines.
