Cod with Artichokes & Basil

I had a jar of marinated artichokes and some fresh basil so here you go:

1 pound cod fillets
2 T fresh chopped basil
10 oz marinated artichokes, plus some liquid from the jar
salt and pepper

Heat oven to 450. Place cod in ovenproof dish, arrange artichokes around and spoon some of the jar juice over the fish. Add salt and pepper and bake 15 to 20 minutes.

Pretty tasty--I served with baked plum tomatoes and green beans seasoned with thyme.


  1. brilliant! what I love about your blog is that everything you make looks beautiful and delicious, but you somehow streamline the directions so that it feels like it was just a snap to make! Unlike some cooks' recipes, which make me tired just looking at them, yours inspire me to mosey into the kitchen and make something!

  2. To my most faithful reader: you are a brilliant cook yourself! The marinade from the artichokes gives this a nice flavor and I didn't have to make it--lazy :-) I'm always looking for different ways to do fish as that is a challenge for me.
