Mediterranean Skillet Cod (South Beach Diet Phase 1)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez

From most recent book. Haven't tried. Servethe cod in shallow bowls with soup spoons so you don't leave any of the rich sauce. This recipe is best made with red, full-flavored, Spanish pequillo peppers, which you usually find among the other jarred peppers in the supermarket. You could use roasted red pepper instead.

This is so delicious and simple to make! Really great sauce that gives the cod great flavor. I would suggest increasing the amount of zucchini which also soaks up the other flavors and tastes amazing.

  2. Stir in tomatoes and peppers and simmer over medium heat 10 minutes longer.
