Cod with Cherry Tomatoes. Who knew how much flavor you can get in one pan. I literally was at Carolina Meat & Fish Company yesterday helping out and was looking around to see what I could make to sample.

Cod is one of the more less expensive fish and very underrated, in my opinion. Feel free to substitute any white fish in this recipe. I’m sure Chilean Sea Bass would be great too! This was prepared in an electric skillet just because that is all I had to work with. But, I must say, it came out perfectly. You can also try this recipe using parchment paper to steam in individual packets.

Heat up a pan, add the orange juice and olive oil and allow to heat up. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Add fish to the pan.

Add in the cherry tomatoes, fresh thyme, garlic, jalapeño and lemon juice. Place lid and allow to steam for about ten minutes.

That is it! If you are using a bigger piece of fish, allow to cook just a bit longer. For individual packets using parchment paper, like I did with my recipe for Baked Fish in Parchment, just divide the ingredients and follow the same as above. Be sure to wrap the packages very tightly then place on pan and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. ENJOY! I am sure this Cod with Cherry Tomatoes will become a staple for an easy weeknight meal.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
