Cooking fish at home often feels like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Take this recipe for tomato-poached cod, from Yasmin Fahr’s Keeping It Simple. It’s just a few ingredients, comes together in 25 minutes and is definitely easy enough to make on a weeknight.
“Back when my sister lived in Paris, I scanned through the Rose Bakery cookbook in her apartment when visiting, which was full of high-quality, minimal and delicious recipes," Fahr writes. "A variation of their poached cod in tomato water was one I made over and over again, for both myself and guests.”
According to Fahr, salting the cod generously on all sides, then setting it aside while you prep the other ingredients, allows it to keep its shape better during the cooking process. Rinse the salt off with cold water and pat dry, then salt and pepper it before adding the sauce. It’s also helpful to get similar-sized fillets so that they cook evenly (and yes, you could swap it for another white fish like mahi mahi, grouper or haddock).
“This recipe is really easy, good for you and can slip into your weeknight rotation when you want to look fancy and feel good with minimal effort (aka my goal in life)." Ours too, Yasmin.
