30-Minute Braised Cod Veracruz
Flaky white cod is one of the more widely distributed and moderately priced fish available. Its mild flavor can be used in countless dishes, but we think it’s at its best when braised with assertive flavorings, like the chiles, tomatoes, and olives of cod Veracruz.
Why This Recipe Works
For this Latin-style braised cod recipe, we laid down a base of sautéed onion, garlic, and chili powder, to which we added tomatoes, olives, and wine. Once the broth was prepared, we simply nestled the pieces of fish down into the sauce, dropped the heat to low, covered the skillet, and let the fish cook in the moist environment. Within about 10 minutes, the fish was cooked through—the result being a tender, moist, and very well seasoned braised cod recipe.
