South Beach Diet – An Elegant Fish Dinner

Cod With Artichokes and Basil (Phase 1)

Description
Marinated artichokes are a great convenience product because they provide concentrated flavor and a delicious liquid, which can also be used to flavor a dish. Together with aromatic basil, they are the perfect foil for flaky, light cod. You can also try pollack, haddock, snapper, or turbot for this recipe.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds cod fillet
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dried basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
10 ounces marinated artichoke hearts (about 12 pieces), plus 1 tablespoon liquid from jar

Instructions
Heat oven to 450°F.

Place cod in an ovenproof baking dish, brush with oil, sprinkle with basil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange artichoke hearts around fish and drizzle with artichoke liquid.

Bake until fish is opaque and just flakes with a fork, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and serve hot.
