I was running late one evening and didn’t have time to make what I had originally planned for dinner, so I shifted plans and improvised a quick fish meal. It was so simple and such a hit that I knew it had to become a Scramble recipe as well!
- 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 - 3 scallions white and light green parts, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, sea salt, or other coarse salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1 1/2 lbs. cod or other white fish fillets, in one large piece or cut into 4 pieces
- 3 - 4 plum tomatoes (also called Roma tomatoes), diced
- 2 tsp. capers or chopped olives optional
- In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering, but not smoking. Turn the heat to medium and add the scallions and sauté for 1 – 2 minutes, until starting to soften.
- Meanwhile, sprinkle the salt and pepper over the cod.
- Add the tomatoes to the skillet along with the capers or olives, if desired, and stir well.
- Then add the cod and nestle it down into the scallion and tomato mixture.
- Cover the skillet with a lid and let cook for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Chop the scallions and tomatoes, cut the fish into 4 pieces if desired and refrigerate. Scramble Flavor Booster: Add 1 clove of minced garlic to the skillet and/or top the fish with chopped fresh Italian parsley before serving. Tip: Don’t forget the fish! Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh found that individuals who ate fish at least once a week had a lower risk of mild cognitive impairment, which has been associated with the development of Alzheimer’s later on in life.
