Cod With Peppercorns and Leeks (Ww 5 Points Plus)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from The South Beach Diet Cookbook. The intro says, “Cracked pepper gives a nice bite to mild cod fillets, while leeks sautéed with garlic" make the perfect accompaniment. This would be good served with lemon wedges and a rice pilaf side since it has a savory sauce. I cooked this in a large skillet that can go from stove-top to oven.
