Cook’s Tip: This recipe works well with cod or halibut, and with most any dried fruit.
Serve with a spinach salad, rice pilaf, or whole wheat couscous.
Cherry/Balsamic Cod or Halibut
Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 10 minutes
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
2 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts
Combine dried fruit, onion, and balsamic vinegar in a small microwaveable bowl. Cover and microwave on medium setting for 1 minute. (Or, heat ingredients in a small saucepan until very warm but not hot, and no more.) Remove from microwave (or saucepan) and stir in pine nuts; let sit, covered, while fish is cooking.
Fill a 12-inch skillet with water to a depth of 1-inch and bring to a boil. Rinse fish under cold water; place fillets in steamer basket. Season with salt and pepper.
Turn off heat. Place steamer basket into skillet; return liquid to a boil. Cover loosely and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove fillets to serving plates; top with fruit.
