Cod & Vegetable Skillet



Introduction

Very Low Sodium, the Nutrition Info is off due to use of very little unsalted butter, low sodium broth, and another vegetable on the side.
I had difficulties with the Add An Ingredient and auto portions.
This is a low sodium, low calorie, low sugar, high protein meal. I included a link to the original recipe, which I tried and revised.
Photo and original recipe from Taste of Home.
It uses fresh cod or haddock, fresh baby carrots, fresh green beans, any kind of onion, white wine, and a low sodium broth as the only "salty" ingredient.
You can substitute any kind of broth, leave out the extra pepper or add more.
I made an Accidental Low Sodium Mushroom sauce originally meant for Brussesl sprouts which went very well with the fish.
This makes a fine lunch as well, and in WI, you could have it for breakfast with a Leinies.

Ingredients

    1 Cup Baby Carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
    1 Large Onion, sliced to preference, remember they'll be sauteed
    1 Bag Green Beans (farmer's market or fresh from the garden best), cleaned. Original recipe calls for 1/2 lb. fresh trimmed green beans.
    1 Large Atlantic Cod or Haddock Fillets; Original recipe says 4 cod or haddock fillets. I used a very large cod cut to fit the skillet.
    1-3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter or margarine, I use butter for taste, but use less and unsalted.
    Drizzle of Olive Oil
    1 Tbsp Flour
    1/2 tsp. Dried Thyme
    1/4 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1/4 tsp. Cayenne (can be left out if you don't want the bit of heat)
    3/4 -1 Cup of the Lowest Sodium Broth you can find.
    I used 3/4 Cup of Roundy's All Natural Chicken Stock w/440 mg Sodium per Cup. Watch out for low sodium boullion that use MSG.
    1/2 - 1/4 White WIne (can substitute 1/4 cup broth if sodium isn't an issue, but the wine makes it more flavorful)
    ========================================
    ACCIDENTAL SAUCE
    I was making a cream of mushroom sauce for Brussels Sprouts, but it tasted better on the Atlantic Cod

    1 Can Cream of Mushroom Low Sodium Soup -- Only 60 mg of Sodium a can
    1/2 Cup Fresh Mushrooms
    Two passes with a Grinder Pepper Corn Medley: Black Peppercorns, Coriander, Pink Peppercorns, White Peppercorns, Allspice, and Green Peppercorns
    Dash of Cayenne
    3 Baby Carrots for flavoring
    Note: Will experiment with different mushroom types, celery, celery flakes and wine next time I make this.

Directions

http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Cod---Vegetable-Skillet
If you want to follow the original recipe
I used a 12 " non-stick Calphalon skillet with glass lid
- Clean the veggies, drain, dry, slice
- Add a drizzle of Olive Oil to a skillet, heat
- Add Butter or Margarine, the least amount needed
- Add dried veggies to skillet:: Sliced Baby Carrots, Sliced Onions, Trimmed Grean Beans, and Saute for 3 minutes
- Stir in Flour and Seasonings, blend well
- Add Broth, stir, Add Wine, stir and blend
- Bring to a boil and let cook for a few minutes; Watch for it to thicken
- Reduce Heat and Add the fish fillets to the skillet
- Cover and simmer for 12 minutes; Check to see that fish flakes easily with a fork.
NOTE: The fish was done before the fish, which cooked perfectly with the above instructions. I removed the fish, ate it with the Accidental Sauce and Brussels Sprouts and let the veggies continue to cook with the lid on. They weren't done for another 15 minutes, but were delicious with the cod.
