Here is another simple microwave dish from Celia Hayes that is loaded with flavor. I recommend a sugar free fruit mix or you could substitute a fresh fruit mix of your choice. I enjoy serving my fish with a side of legumes for the extra protein. Quinoa would make a nice side dish as well. Substitutions are an excellent expression of creativity.
–cod (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–tropical fruit (canned)
–pine nuts (one-half small package)
–salt and pepper
–black-eyed peas (canned)
1 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Separate the papaya and passion fruit from the pineapple in the tropical fruit can. Place the papaya and passion fruit, with a little liquid, in a food processor and pulse until pureed. Pour over the cod. Sprinkle the cod with pine nuts. Season with olive oil. Set aside.
2 – Drain the black-eyed peas in a colander. Place in a covered baking dish. Season with pepper, cayenne pepper, and olive oil. Microwave for 3 minutes.
3 – Microwave the cod for 6 minutes on high. Cod is done when it begins to break apart.
4 – Serve the dinner hot.
