Ingredients

Cod

Vegetables

Preparation

Cod

  1. In a large non-stick skillet over high heat, cook the fish and the ginger in the oil for 4 minutes, without stirring. Add the butter and continue cooking for 1 minute or until a golden crust forms on the undersides of the cod. Season with salt and pepper and turn the cod over. Remove the skillet from the heat and let rest for 5 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Keep the ginger and any cooking juices in the skillet.

Vegetables

  1. In the same skillet, add the broth, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and sambal oelek. Bring to a boil and let reduce by half, for about 4 minutes. Remove and compost the ginger. Add the zucchini to the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes or until lightly wilted. Adjust the seasoning.
  2. Divide the cod and zucchini among 4 shallow bowls. Top with the avocado, green onion and cilantro. Drizzle with any cooking juices. Serve with rice, if desired.
