This fresh codfish recipe is simple and delicious! Perfect for lent, meatless Mondays or any day of the week. Feel free to use salt cod if you prefer. Here’s the recipe:


  • 1 lb fresh boneless cod
  • 1 28oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper (sliced)
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • Lemon Juice (1/2 of a lemon)
  • Parsley (chopped) for garnish


Cut codfish into 4 sections. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes.

In a skillet, add tomatoes, sliced roasted pepper, butter, chicken stock, wine and let simmer on medium heat for around 5-10 minutes, stirring often, to absorb flavors.

Arrange fish evenly in skillet. Cover the fish with the tomatoes/sauce. Cook for 5 minutes, stir (gently to not break up the fish) and cover with lid. Cook on medium heat for an additional 8-10 minutes or until codfish is flaky and white.

Garnish with Parsley and serve.
