Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring broth, onion, 1 1/2 cups tomatoes, potatoes, basil sprigs, red-pepper flakes, and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil in a large, deep, straight-sided skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Season cod with salt and pepper, add to broth mixture, and cover. Simmer until fish is opaque throughout and just cooked through, about 7 minutes.

  • Remove and discard basil sprigs. Add sugar snaps, remaining 1/2 cup tomatoes, and lemon juice to skillet, gently stirring to combine; cook just until warmed through. Divide fish, vegetables, and broth among 4 bowls. Garnish with basil leaves, drizzle with oil, and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.

This recipe is cunningly simple but produces a show stopping result: artistic, subtle tastes, satisfying and dinner party worthy. I substituted asparagus for the snap peas, and I added a few mushrooms I had and a few saffron threads. It was so beautiful I wish I had photographed it. This is going into the rotation!

Great recipe. I can't see using that broth that comes in the carton. It has no flavor. I use Better Than Bouillon brand roasted chicken. It is a paste and I can make my soups and stews as strong as I like. There is no MSG either. BTB comes in all sorts of "flavors", even mushroom and vegetarian.

This recipe is fabulous! My husband and I were watching Martha's cooking class on PBS and she featured this dish. My husband asked me to try it. It is wonderful, rich and complex in flavor and very satisfying. Do NOT omit the red pepper flakes, it gives it a depth of flavor, but it is not spicy. I have used regular yukon gold or fingerling potatoes instead of the blue potatoes that are sometimes hard to find. Serve with a nice salad and hot bread, YUM..........

Just made this recipe, very tasty. I omitted the onion and pepper flakes. Broth was outstanding and I really liked the fish and tomatoes. Next time I'm planning on not boiling the potatoes and put in some ramen noodles at the end. I think it'll make it a little bit more filling, and I just wasn't digging the potatoes.

I didn't have anything on hand but canned tomatoes, dried basil, white onion, and chicken bouillon cubes, but it was still really, really delicious. I saved the broth for soup it was so good!
