My mom often pairs her cod fish with rice or she uses it in making spinach stew. One of the things, I like about this recipe is the fact that it isn’t complicated and can be ready in less than 30 minutes.

No, matter who is making it, the process is always the same, although the spices and ingredients might change based on individual preferences. In the past, I’ve used halibut, sablefish, sole, and pollock. Any of these varieties works.

Thawing out Wild Alaska Cod Fillet

For this recipe, I used the frozen Wild Alaska Cod Fillet I picked up at my local grocery store. You can find them in the freezer section, right next to the seafood department. To thaw them out, I let it sit in water for about 20 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.


While the fish is thawing, I use that time to blend my pepper and tomato sauce.
