COD IN PAPAYA & PASSION FRUIT SAUCE WITH PINE NUTS / SPICY BLACK-EYED PEAS

Standard

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.

THE MEDITERRANEAN MICROWAVE

–cod (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)

–tropical fruit (canned)

–pine nuts (one-half small package)

–salt and pepper

–olive oil

–black-eyed peas (canned)

–cayenne pepper

 

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.
