Cod Poached in Spicy Tomato Broth

Serve a one-dish dinner of fish in a Mediterranean-inspired sauce. You'll love the bright punch of flavor from the crushed red pepper--and how easy this dish is to clean up. Cod is a firm, white saltwater fish. Flounder or sole can substitute.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 2/3 cup sauce)


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 none (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • 4 none (6-ounce) cod fillets
  • 10 none kalamata olives, pitted and chopped


Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute or until lightly browned. Add water and next 4 ingredients (water through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Add fish; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Top with olives.
