by Chef Jason Wilson
Prep Time 10 minutes; Cook Time: 25 minutes
Serves 4

3 medium Yukon potatoes
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
1 Tablespoon chopped onion
2 Tablespoons sherry vinegar (or red balsamic vinegar)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Zest of 1 lemon

10 each pitted Nicoise olives, slivered, pits removed
1 Tablespoon fresh marjoram, chopped rough
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley (Italian), chopped rough
4 (6 oz. each) Alaskan Cod fillets

  • Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Peel the potatoes and place them in a saucepot; cover with cold water. Boil for 5 minutes, turn off the heat and cool 10 minutes.
  • Remove potatoes from liquid. Cut into 1/3-inch to 1/2-inch thick slices. Place potatoes on a spray-coated or oiled baking pan. Bake 10 minutes, or until cooked.
  • In a large pan, simmer the garlic and onion in olive oil for 4 minutes on medium heat or until fragrant. Stir in the sherry vinegar and paprika. Simmer for 1 minute; turn off heat. Add the potatoes, lemon, olives and herbs to the pan, toss lightly.
  • Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper. In sauté pan on medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add cod and sauté until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
  • To serve, divide and portion potato salad onto 4 plates, top with cod and spoon any remaining sauce from the potato salad over the fillets.
