Sometimes during the week I just want to make dinner in less than 20 minutes. I love cooking but when it’s been a long day the goal is to put a delicious dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. I used cod for this recipe only because I wanted a flaky white fish. You may certainly splurge and use Chilean sea bass my personal favorite.
I dislike tilapia but if you enjoy it you may certainly use it as well. This dish is full of flavor, veggies, juicy tomatoes, and flaky fish yum! I suggest serving this with white rice and maybe some white wine 🙂
So here are the veggies you’ll need minus the mushrooms (sorry mushrooms)
There they are! I sauteed the onions, peppers, mushrooms, and garlic for a couple minutes to get them nice and caramelized.
I used diced tomatoes because they cook so well and they’re so juicy.
I seasoned the fish with salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, and a little olive oil.
Cook the fish for 12-15 minutes and voila
This delicious skillet cod dinner is ready in 20 minutes and is packed with delicious onions, mushrooms, green and red peppers cooked to perfection in a juicy tomato sauce.
