It's easy for me to get into a rotisserie chicken rut on weeknights, but fish is just as fast and easy. This one-pan dish takes about 20 minutes start to finish. It's healthy, beautiful and delicious. It's pretty much everything I want, and need, from a weeknight meal. —Summer Miller

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound cod, trimmed into about 5 oz. sections
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 - 6 ounces jar artichokes marinating in oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 - 14 ounces can of diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 - 15 ounces can of great northern beans
  • 1/3 cup Kalmata olives, rough chopped
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 3 strips lemon rind, cut into slivers
  • 1/4 wedge of lemon
  1. Sprinkle both sides of the cod portions with salt and pepper. Take 2 tablespoons of oil from the jar of artichokes and heat in a deep skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and oregano cook for about 1 minute more. Add the tomatoes with their juice. Rough chop the artichokes and add to the pan along with the remaining oil from the jar. Give it a stir. Bring to a simmer. Add the Cod. Cook for about 5-7 minutes depending on how thick your cod is, but really until the fish flakes. Rinse and drain beans. Add to pan along with capers, Kalmata olives. Add the juice from a wedge of lemon. Garnish with slivered lemon zest. It should be brothy and delicious. Serve.
