You can never go wrong with this fish dish. My children love when I prepare fish for dinner. Wild black cod, also known as sablefish or butterfish, is a soft, flaky, fatty fish with an Omega-3 content similar to salmon.
We enjoy this versatile fish grilled on the barbecue, baked in the oven, or sautéed with potatoes and vegetables. It simply works with any preparation method.
I have found that it is easier to blanch or steam your vegetables before sautéing.
If you are using frozen vegetables, it is always best to cook them first because they take longer to cook and can cause your dish to become a bit waterlogged otherwise.
In this recipe, I boil the potatoes and steam the broccoli beforehand. This also helps to ensure even cooking while maintaining the bright green color of the broccoli.
A perfect healthy meal for the family, you can try this dish and make it your own! Let us know your recipe additions and alterations below.
