Even though we overcooked it a bit, this dish was really great and I look forward to making it again in the future. I went with the 4 minutes covered cook time since my cod was fairly thin, but it was still too much time for both the cod and the green beans. I really liked this dish and it is an easy way to cook up a quick, nutritious meal.
Poached Cod & Green Beans with Pesto
From EatingWell: July/August 2014
Using just one skillet, this easy fish recipe cooks cod right on top of fresh green beans and uses the same pan to make a flavorful sauce. The result is perfectly flaky fish, tender-crisp vegetables, a savory pan sauce and very little cleanup.
5 Reviews for Poached Cod & Green Beans with Pesto
I will definitely be making this dish again in the near future. It is a quick, one-pan dish that is healthy and tasty. Ours was even a little overcooked (think soft green beans) but still good! Next time I'll go for 3 minutes covered cooking time and less time sauteeing the beans/shallots at the beginning. This one is a keeper!
Delicious, simple - make sure to drain the fish & beans well, as I did not and it turned into a bit of a soup at the bottom of the plate. Not a problem, as I liked the flavors so well I ate that, too! Will definitely be adding this to my repertoire.
I've made with halibut or cod and with homemade pesto and store bought. both really great. remarkably good with very few ingredients.
I saw this recipe in the latest EW issue and it just looked great in the picture, so I had to try it. It is a 1-pan recipe so it was easy clean-up for the most part. The shallots and pesto added a really nice flavor to the fish and beans. Would definitely make again.
