Oven-Steamed Cod with Vegetables Recipe
Depending on the time of year, vary both the fish and the vegetables. Try thinly sliced string beans, tomatoes, or summer squash -- or a combination of all three. Here, we're using broccoli, mushrooms, and herbs along with the oven-steamed fish.
Oven-Steamed Cod with Vegetables Ingredients:
- 2 lbs Cod Fillets
- 6 ounces Broccoli
- 4 ounces Sliced Mushrooms
- 1/2 cup Chopped Onion (optional)
- 1 tablespoon Minced sweet Majoram, Basil or Parsley
- Freshly milled Black Pepper
- 1 tablespoon Butter
Prep Time: 5 minutes.
Cook Time: 15 minutes.
Total Time: 20 minutes.
Oven-Steamed Cod with Vegetables Cooking Directions:Preheat the oven to 400°F
Place the cod (or other fish) in the middle of a piece of aluminum foil that's large enough to hold the fish and vegetables. Cover with the broccoli, mushrooms, onion, if using, and sweet marjoram. Add salt and pepper to taste, then dot with the butter.
Make an envelope out of the foil, enclosing the fish and vegetables, and place it on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. The fish will be cooked through, and the vegetables will retain some of their crunch. Open the foil carefully, because the steam that is released can burn you if you're not cautious.
