Poached Cod & Green Beans with Pesto

July/August 2014

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (19 votes)

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.

Simple and Tasty

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.

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!

Simply delicious

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.

Ease of prep, ingredients that are generally on hand;

Refreshing Fish Dish!

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.
