IMG_8008

For those of you unaware…the hub & I moved to Boston for his job. Needless to say he has been off for a few months (hence our traveling) and it has been one stellar summer! Welp, those days are long gone, his official first day in the office was yesterday! With that said, I let him pick his last supper (before the new job) & he picked this tasty cod recipe for dinner with peanut butter/chocolate/pretzel cookies for dessert (don’t fret, I will be posting this recipe tomorrow)!

Anywho, not only does this dish take a total of 15minutes from fridge to table, but it is amazing! So lets get to this quick & easy recipe…

  1. Set broiler to high (make sure rack is in middle of oven) & make a few slits into one side of fish
  2. Cut fennel stalks from bulb, reserve fronds (the part that looks similar to dill) & place only the stalks in 8×8 baking dish – set aside
  3. In a small bowl whisk together 2T EVOO, 2t minced garlic, 2t fresh lemon zest + 1T fresh lemon juice, 1t dried oregano, 1t salt & 1/4t pepper – rub this mixture on all sides of fish & place in baking dish (on top of fennel stalks)
  4. Thinly slice the fennel bulb* & in a large bowl combine with 1 pint of grape tomatoes, 1/2C kalamata olives, 1T EVOO, 1/2t salt & 1/4t pepper – spread evenly around fish
  5. Place in oven for 8-10minutes

Portion & serve. Told you, quick & easy! Hope you enjoy!
