Instructions Checklist

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add shallot, chorizo (or kielbasa) and thyme and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and 1/4 cup wine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are broken down and the wine is almost evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in beans and 1/4 teaspoon salt and remove from the heat.

  • Sprinkle fish with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; place in the prepared baking dish. Top each piece of fish with equal amounts of the tomato mixture (about 1/2 cup per fillet). Pour the remaining 1/4 cup wine into the pan and cover the pan with foil. Bake until the fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve the fish with the sauce spooned over the top.

Tips

Tips:
For this recipe we use fully cooked Spanish-style chorizo--spicy pork sausage seasoned with smoked paprika and chile. Find it near other cured sausages in well-stocked supermarkets, specialty food stores or online at tienda.com. Make it a Meal: Enjoy with steamed green beans and roasted potatoes tossed with thyme and coarse salt.

Overfishing and trawling have drastically reduced the number of cod in the U.S. and Canadian Atlantic Ocean and destroyed its sea floor. For sustainably fished cod, choose U.S. Pacific cod or Atlantic cod from Iceland and the northeast Arctic. For more information, visit Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch at seafoodwatch.org.

LOVE this recipe. My husband and I prefer it with Kielbasa. We used frozen cod so the ingredients are things we typically have on hand making this a quick recipe to put together. Read More

This is an easy dish that works well for a healthy gluten free diet (one member of the family has celiac disease.) We added a little more chorizo (gf) and seared the fish first. We used cod but this dish would pair well with almost any white fish. Served with roasted baby potatoes with thyme and steamed broccoli. Rainbow chard would pair well too. Easy healthy dinner that the whole family enjoyed. You can also make this vegetarian by using soyrizo and omitting the fish (add more beans.) Read More

This is great. We've made it with chorizo and linguisa and pepperoni and comes out great every time. It is a weeknight regular in our house. Good with couscous. Read More

A winner at our supper table Very nice dish and different way to cook white fish. I made two modifications. I used bass instead. In the end any white fish will do. I sauteed the filets just enough to give a sear and nice color to the filets. Searing locks in the juices and gives a liitle crunch or else it poaches in the wine. Pros: Easy and quick Cons: None Read More

Made this last night it will be a regular and I will be buying cod more often. I only made one change--I used 2 oz (maybe a bit more) of Hot pork sausage the kind in the roll. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. Instead of a 9 x 13 dish I put the fish in individual casseroles (only 2 of us) and topped each with 1/2 cup of the sauce. We loved it the hot sausage gave it a nice bite. I roasted fingerlings and also steamed broccolini. I have exactly enough for tonight's dinner and I will try it with talapia. A delicious dish easy to prepare and definitely can be made ahead. I can't think of any cons. Read More

Amazing! This dish was amazing! We loved every last bite. The person that commented it was bland may not have used the right kind of chorizo? There's nothing bland here. I'm making it again tonight! Read More

Bland is the word I upped the thyme and I was still VERY disappointed as was my husband. Even with upping the thyme the cod and vegetables were BLAND. Will NOT make again! Pros: Easy one meal dish. Cons: No flavor excel for the sausage Read More

Gorgeous rustic dish It turned out like I had spend ours yet the prep was simple. It's beautiful to look at and doesnt need anything to go with it except some a nice white wine perhaps the one you cooked with and some crusty bread. I doubled the beans added spinach and skipped a side:) I will make this again Pros: You can make it on a weaknight and still eat like it's a weekend Cons: The recipe needs some increase in seasoning & chorizo Read More

I used vegan chorizo you can buy from Trader Joe's - was very nice. I did not have fresh thyme but used dried and it did help with fragrance - the TJ's chorizo is spicy and adding fennel seed or sweet peppers might be another nice addition - very nice meal Read More

Quick I made this on a weeknight and it was a quick prep. It took was about 5 mins on the stove and the rest of the time unattended in the oven while. I got the rest of my side dishes done while it cooked. LOW MAINTENANCE-what a bonus! I checked Monteray Bay Aquarium site an dI used Haddock instead of Cod since they only had Atlantic Cod and its overfished. Pros: Easy Quick and tasty Cons: none Read More

Delicioso! We loved this recipe. We added twice the amount of chorizo (about 2 full links) 1 clove of garlic 2 whole shallots ancho chili powder (to the fish) and lemon. We served it with garlic roasted red potatoes and green beans. We will def. make it again! Pros: This dish was delicious! Very flavorful! Read More

Easy Delicious and Healthy! This recipe is delightfully flavorful and will fall apart if cooked properly. I reserved the salt from this recipe and added 3.5 OZ Chorizo instead of 2. I would highly recommend cooking some rolls with this as you WILL have tons of delicious sauce which would taste great with bread. 10/10 for an easy and delicious meal!

delightfully delicious! It was the best new fish recipe. I liked that it was light and i didnt feel heavy afterwards. This combination is great for anyone who likes the components of the meal. The Chorizo isnt overbearing and the tomatoes gave it just enough acidity and bit. Pros: It was so light but yet filling. Cons: Love it. Read More

Incredible family pleaser There isn't anything my family doesn't love about this recipe. So quick and full of flavor. I like to serve this on a bed of garlic sauteed spinach which gives it more great color and another layer of health. Pros: Simple unexpected healthy Cons: No leftovers Read More

Nice Sunday dinner I liked that this dish was healthy and super easy to throw together. I followed the recipe exactly except I only had sun-dried tomato chicken sausage so I added some red chili flakes to make up for missing spice. It turned out really nice and was well paired with a Washington Pinot Gris and corn on the cob. My boyfriend and I agreed that this would be easily altered perhaps using some tarragon fennnel and orange zest instead of thyme. Read More

Not for me I was NOT a fan of this recipe. I am new to eating cooked fish and perhaps that is why I did not like it. I attempted to eat it and had to throw it all away. Even the thought of this dish makes me not feel well. Maybe I screwed up the recipe but safe to say I will never attempt this one again. Pros: Easy to make Cons: Disgusting Read More

This was one FABULOUS date night meal at home for my man!:) I used stewed tomatoes since I had them on hand and I threw a few shrimp in with the tilapia (no cod at the store that day) & skipped the sausage but used a few drops of liquid smoke. Next time I may add a few scallops too. I'm adding this one to the "meals for my man and me" section of my recipe collection. LOL!
