Optavia Cod with Squash in Spicy Tomato Sauce Recipe
Cod with Squash in Spicy Tomato Sauce is cooked in a vibrant sauce cleverly crammed with a whole bunch of vegetables: in addition to tomatoes, there’s diced butternut squash and sweet pepper in there, along with a few capers mashed into the mix. Round it all out with wee orzo pasta flecked with leafy greens.
- In a medium-sized skillet, sear cod over medium-high heat in oil for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until it begins to flake with gentle pressure.
- Meanwhile, add garlic, Thai chilies, tomatoes, squash, and fish sauce to a medium pot. Simmer over medium heat until squash is tender, but not overcooked.
- Place cod fillets on the serving dish and top with tomato sauce. Garnish with cilantro.
