What’s Cooking: Fish With Spinach


Hi, I’m Chef Amy. Today I’m making a recipe that’s
sure to please. Sauteed cod with a tomato and spinach sauce. It looks and tastes like
a gourmet specialty but it’s actually really simple. Even a beginner can pull it off. This
recipe is naturally gluten, dairy, and soy-free. It’s a great choice for someone with food
sensitivities. Let’s start by heating our skillet over high heat. Once it’s hot, we’re
going to drizzle a little bit of vegetable oil into the skillet. Next, we’ll add a pound
of fish to the hot oil and cook it for approximately 5 minutes per side. Fish is a great source
of protein and a tasty way to add some variety to your diet. I’m using cod but you can also
use this recipe with other types of white fish like halibut or flounder. Once it’s deeply
browned, remove the fish onto a plate and cover. Reduce the heat to medium and another
drizzle of oil, and a chopped onion, and garlic. We’ll cook these for about 7 minutes. Now
add 2 cups of low-sodium diced tomatoes and a half a cup of water. We’ll cook this for
about 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens and turns a nice orange color. Finally, we’ll
return the fish to the skillet and cover with 2 cups of frozen spinach and a half cup of
chopped olives. We’ll cook these covered for about 2 minutes, until the spinach is steamed.
Now we’re ready to serve. Feel free to use fresh tomatoes or spinach in place of canned
or frozen, especially when they’re in season at your local farmer’s market. To find this

Bon Appetit!
