Tonight's Dinner: Spicy Cod & Tomatoes

I starred this Real Simple recipe email in my Gmail last week, and tonight I decided to make it.  Being culinarily challenged, the small ingredient list, fast cook time, and that it's in one pot was right up my alley. I also love summer squash.

I made a few edits. The recipe called for halibut, but Southie Stop & Shop didn't have, so I went with cod...very New England! The recipe called for jalepenos and diced tomatoes; I decided to get zesty chile spicy tomatoes- killing 2 birds with 1 stone!  I recipe suggested red onion, but it gives me heartburn, so I went with a yellow onion.




Had to do a little improvising here...not to self: need a larger pan!



I was worried that the cod wasn't fully cooked, so I left it on the stove about 5 minutes longer than the recipe said. Overall, the dish was delicious and very easy. I have 3 meals of leftovers too!

  7. Looks good. I'm just like you when it comes to cooking--challenged from a culinary standpoint :) I'm all about fast prep times and short ingredient lists, too.

    And hooray for leftovers!
