This elegant seafood meal cooks in one skillet and is ready in just 30 minutes, making it a great option for entertaining dinner guests or just feeding your family on a Tuesday. Here, we used mild cod as a canvas for the bright flavors of briny olives, fresh tomatoes, and shallot. But any flaky white fish—halibut, striped bass, tilapia—would be just as delicious.
Meal Items
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 24 oz uncooked Atlantic cod, 4 (6-oz) fillets
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 large uncooked shallots, sliced lengthwise (1 cup)
  • 10 oz fresh tomatoes, cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 16 medium olives, Kalamata variety, pitted and halved
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, torn if large, divided
  • ½ cup basil, torn if large, divided
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 4 lemon wedges, for serving (optional)

Instructions
  1. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the oil over medium-high. Season the fish with ½ tsp each salt and black pepper and coat with 1 tsp of the oil. Add the fish to the pan and cook, undisturbed, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the fish and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the fish to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining 2 tsp oil and the shallot to the pan and cook until the shallot starts to turn golden, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the tomatoes, olives, crushed red pepper, half the herbs, ¼ cup water, and the remaining pinch of salt and black pepper. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Return the fish to the pan, nestling the fillets among the tomato mixture so they touch the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook until the fillets are just opaque in the centers and the tomatoes have begun to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with the remaining herbs. Serve with the lemon wedges (if using).
  4. Serving Size: 1 piece of Cod and ½ cup of sauce!
