4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 cup ragout)

This easy-to-fix skillet dinner elevates plain white fish to the height of good taste as the fish is incorporated into a Mediterranean-style ragout chock-full of tasty ingredients such as prosciutto and shiitake mushrooms.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1/2 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the prosciutto; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in garlic; remove from pan. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and leek; sauté 8 minutes. Stir in tomato, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the spinach to pan, and stir until spinach is wilted (about 3 minutes). Stir in the prosciutto mixture and basil. Remove from pan; cover and keep warm.

Step 3

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in pan over medium-high heat. Dredge fillets in flour. Add fillets to pan; sauté 3 minutes on each side. Cover and cook 2 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Divide spinach mixture among 4 plates; top with fillets.

The vegetable ragout is fantastic! The fish was okay, but it was simple and didn't interfere with the Veg. Ragout, so it worked (I did add a tad bit of salt & pepper before dredging in the four).

This was great! The flavors were excellent and it wasn't that difficult to prepare. My 8 year old nephew (who can be picky) devoured it, as did our 2 year old. We will be making this again. www.thecyclistswife.blogspot.com

This is a wonderful way to fix a healthy meal with fish. The fresh basil gives it a fresh, light flavor. One of my favorites. I've fixed it twice - my family loves it! This is an easy recipes for the person who doesn't know how to fix cod.

I love this recipe. I prefer to make it with salmon. I have also substituted asparagus for the spinach in spring.

So delicious and light. I also made a parmesan polenta, which worked great with these flavors.

My next door made this for my husband and I. I couldn't wait to get the recipe!! Very light and wonderful flavors. It is rare to get a fish recipe that taste like restaurant quality!
