Spicy Cod With Tomatoes and Spinach

Total Time

I've been trying to make healthy tasty recipes for my family with what I have on hand. This came about as an experiment. My husband asked me to submit it so we wouldn't lose it. I consider that a pretty high compliment! Serve this over noodles (I used whole wheat elbows but something with some nooks and crannies to catch the sauce would be great!) with some veggies and bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
  2. Add the onions, shallots, and garlic.
  3. Cook until the onion is translucent.
  4. Add all the tomatoes, the tomato paste, and the cumin.
  5. Stir and let it simmer 3-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken slightly.
  6. Add the spinach and stir until it is combined.
  7. Let it cook 2-3 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile chop the cod into small even pieces.
  9. Add it to the tomato sauce, stirring to make sure it is all covered with sauce.
  10. Let it simmer 5-8 minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

This was really good on sun dried tomato couscous. I added chopped chili and a splash of Worcester sauce to keep it interesting.

Wonderful is all I can say. I definately will make this again. I followed the recipe as written and served over angel hair pasta and served with a green salad. What a great dish...thank you. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag game.

This was really good! We served it over whole wheat couscous, and it absorbed the sauce wonderfully!
