Black Cod in Tomato-Saffron Stew

Recipe photo courtesy of Christopher Baker

Familiar ingredients come together in an unexpected way in a stew of black cod, tomato, and saffron; scallions, dried currants, and almonds add fragrance and compelling texture. Crusty baguette is just right for dipping.

    This is one of my favorite reckless. I serve it with soft polenta and it is delicious! It is so simple but has always been a hit with everyone I've made it for.

    This was delicious and very easy to make. I agree that some of the ingredients can be tricky to find. I used raisins that I cut in half instead of dried currants. Although I'd never think of combining these ingredients on my own, they come together very well. And after all, isn't that the point of following a recipe?

    This was fantastic and so easy to prepare. I used regular pacific cod fillets. The baguette was perfect for sopping up the delicious broth - don't skip it!

    Delicious recipe! i didn't have fennel seeds so I used 1/4 tsp of chinese five spice instead which worked a treat. Served with rice and used half the amount the amount of fish for the same amount of sauce for two people and it was really tasty.

    I needed a recipe for hake, and it's very similar to cod, so I used this recipe. My husband and I really enjoyed it, but I didn't have the guts to use the currants. They just seemed strange to me. I love the way the different flavors came together and the garnishes really make it. It was pretty easy, although some of the ingredients are not so easy to find in a hurry in the grocery store.
