When deciding what to eat each week I always try to add one night of fish. I only buy wild caught fish so my choices are sometimes limited to what’s available and how expensive it is. This week Haddock was on sale at my Giant so I bought 2 lbs. I’ve made it before and we love it. I didn’t want to just bake it or fry it. I wanted to do something with more flavor. I decided to make a Portuguese Style Haddock, which can be made with cod as well. It is made with diced tomatoes, olives and onion (among other ingredients). What’s not to like? I served it over rice this time and it was delicious. My son had 2 servings. Here’s how I made it.
Portuguese Style Haddock or Cod
1 package of sliced portabella mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
3 cloves of crushed garlic
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup roughly chopped black olives
1/4 cup minced curly parsley
1 tsp. dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 lbs. haddock or cod
Heat olive oil in a large pan with sides. Add mushrooms, onions and garlic and sautee for 5 ninutes over meduim heat. Add canned tomatoes (including the juice), olives, parlsey, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook, uncovered about 5-10 minutes, stirring occastionaly. Cut the cod into serving size pieces and salt and pepper the fish. Add to the top of the tomato mixture. Cover and cook over medium heat about 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. If you prefer a thicker sauce remove the fish. Mix together corn starch and water. Add this to the tomato mixture. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens. Add the fish back in. This can be served over rice if desired.
Enjoy! What’s for dinner at your house?
