Sicilian Cod

The caramelized onion, pepper and raisin mixture is a great combination that juxtaposes perfectly with the fish.

Ingredients

FOR THE ONION AND PEPPERS:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

FOR THE FISH:

  • 2 6-ounce cod fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

Instructions

  • Place oven rack about 1/3 from the top and preheat broiler. Cover a rimmed baking pan with foil.
  • Place cod on pan, brush 1/2 teaspoon oil, and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  • Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion and the next 6 ingredients (onion through pepper). Cover and cook 10 minutes or until onion is wilted and peppers are tender, stirring occasionally. Set aside; keep warm.
  • Once vegetables are cooking, place pan with fish in oven and broil for about 10 minutes, depending on thickness, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. 
  • Place the fish on a plate, top with the vegetables, and serve immediately.

Notes

Goes well with steamed rice and a green vegetable. Italian Spinach works well also as a side. If serving with rice, begin the rice first.
